Rupert Murdoch, the Economy, and Church Leadership
From a memo recently issued by Rupert Murdoch to his staff:
"We are in the midst of a phase of history in which nations will be redefined and their futures fundamentally altered."
"Let me be very clear about our company: where others might step back from their commitment to their viewers, their users, readers and customers – we will renew ours."The direction of the business now and over the next few years will define the character of our company for decades."
Applying this to church:
1) How will churches be "redefined" in coming days?
2) How will our "futures be altered?"
3) What commitments must be renewed in the economic downturn?
4) What choices, made now, will define our church for decades?
