Clay Shirky on Missional Church

Well. Hardly. Really, it’s more about the death of consumer church. But. You just need to read between the lines.

Jay Rosen linked to this video of Clay Shirky, on Twitter (@jayrosen_nyu). Rosen said this in his tweet,

Greatest “What’s So Funny ‘Bout Peace, Love and Undertanding” talk about community, tech and open source EVER.

I’m convinced Shirky, and Rosen for that matter, are two of the more important prophets of this generation. Watch this video, please.

If you’re interested in more prophetic insight – follow Shirky and Rosen on Twitter – @cshirky and @jayrosen_nyu – real insight, 140 characters at a tweet.

(My leadership consultant buddy, Ed Brenegar has his own take on this Shirky video that’s worth a read.)



A television editor, writer & director since 1978. A Christian since 1982. More than a little frustrated with the Church in the West since late in the last millennium.

One response to Clay Shirky on Missional Church

  1. Brilliant! Thanks for posting this – it creates optimism and stirs my imagination for the possibilities. I definitely see the parallels to missional church and group collaboration (as an alternative to the church-as-industry model). Love it!
