I can’t remember how I got connected with Brad, but when I did I realized that this guy was cool.
I mean, the kind-of-sideways-hat with the somewhat neon-treatment and the backwards and dif-spelled “enjoi” with a tagline on his blog that says:
clever repartee fills my mouth. rhythm saturates my ears. life floods my veins.
puts my coolness factor to shame. I mean, he’s got a cool hairdo too.
But what really got me going was how he was using technology, and even more than just using his blog for an ego-trip, but using it to ask his community, his staff, and those he ministers too intriguing and challenging questions.
He’s also on top of tech news as well and I’ve written more than one entry about some of the stuff he’s brought up.
Anyways, he’s got the spot for this Friday 5:

How do you see Web Technology impacting The Kingdom?
I see it growing everyday. I see kids spending hrs in front of computers creating content and networking.
I see the Internet as a resource that was not allowed to be created so everyone can be addicted to porn… but instead the Internet is a VERY TANGIBLE AND REALISTIC way for my generation to see the commissioning of Christ fulfilled— ‘Go into all the Earth…’
The emerging Christ followers and Church leaders who can best leverage this tool are going to see millions introduced to the Christ… What those millions do with Him is there decision to make.
