Purpose Driven, Branding, Telegrams and Rejected Ads

November 22, 2006 by
  • ABC dumps Assemblies of God ad – It’s a rehashing of the rejected UCC commercials, but getting much less coverage.
  • Churches using online promotion – “We’re talking about the evolution of communication. Can you imagine if I insisted on sending telegrams?”
  • U2charist – You’ll have to forgive my U2-fandom, but I just love the stories of U2 and church coming together. Of course in this case it’s more than just singing U2 songs in church–it’s also backing the UN’s Millenium Development Goals.
  • Burned by Branding – A rant comparing multi-site churches to Starbucks that are out of touch with locals, which misses one of the key features of going multi-site–a local connection.
  • Purpose Driven is No More – The organization Purpose Driven is being shut down. Maybe now people can cut back a little on the anti-Purpose Driven rants.
  • Oaktreeidea – Connecting Christians outside the walls of church to accomplish great things.
