Imagine that, I'm Rocky Road Ice Cream: "Unpredictable and wild, you know how to have fun. You're also a trendsetter who takes risks with new things. You know about the latest and greatest - and may have invented it! You are most compatible with vanilla ice cream."

Bob, This is a very interesting post and comment section. I hadn't checked out your blog when this first came out, so I'm glad the comments drew me to it. I'm curious, have you ever had any feedback from Driscoll on any of the posts you've written?

Bob I'm confused. Was the picture of Dog the Bounty Hunter you included in this post meant to be proof of chickification in the church, or proof of the need for manly men?

John, thanks for mentioning whatyou're been reading. Some of these are on my "to read" list and it's good to get your feedback on them. We're currently using The Church of Irresistible Influence in our Community Groups. Great book.

I agree with Mark that there are "idiotic ideas, stinky styles, stupid systems, failed facilities [and] terrible technologies" that need to die so more effective ones can replace them. Yet to describe people, even metaphorically, as "dogs", while at the same time calling them "losers" and "pathetic" crosses the line by at least a mile. As a pastor I've dealt with plenty of difficult people, and I'm sure I've been the difficult person more than once. But it bums me out that someone with as much influence as Mark would lead people with this kind of example.

I dig your blog and was thinking about putting it on my favorites, so since you asked, you're now there.

As a first time church planter, I really appreciate hearing the stories of other church planters about what they went through starting their church, and seeing what God has done in the mean time. Thanks for what you shared. I look forward to learning more about Evergreen.
