Innovation is a Discussion

We just launched a facebook group about the book Innovation in Mission and it has reminded me of one important lesson. Innovation is understood and celebrated through discussion. As I talk with the people signing up on the group, I am finding that they have so many great ideas and creative solutions.

It is exciting to see how God is using people to innovate. The other side to the discussion is the discouragement. Many times people get stuck in a rut or have a challenge so big they can't get their hands around it. These situations need discussions as well.

I think one of the most vital elements of innovation has to be the discussions where we share our ideas and our challenges and get others involved in helping us to find solutions.

so what do you see coming together that allows for that kind of discussion happening on a global level regarding the innovation that needs to happen to see the 6400+ unreached people groups engaged in our lifetime? My desire is to personally be a catalyst in the engagement of one unreached people in my lifetime and spur others on to that same mission. This is the reason I started the TEOTE! cause on facebook. My hope was simply to begin gathering those people together for that kind of a movement. Discussion and interaction is key to proper implementation.
