Top 10 Ways to Connect

Connecting with people is one of the most important roles of being a pastor. I was inspired by Valeria Maltoni with her list of 100 Ways to Connect. I selected my top 10 from the list at Conversation Agent.

  • Introduce Peers
  • Tell Stories
  • Stay offline when you’re tired or argumentative
  • Brag about your fans’ products and services
  • Become the person you’d like to be
  • Stay soft on people, hard on issues
  • Thank often and liberally
  • Adopt and credit good ideas
  • Appreciate success is several years in the making
  • Set a good example
What do you find to be the most effective ways of connecting with people?

The Power of the World Cup

This weekend is the finals of the World Cup.

This amazing sports event connects nations, continents and the world in a game of sport.

What event similarly connects the church?

I believe the Jesus’ incarnation and resurrection as well as communion and baptism are all key connections across the church.

How do you respond?
