Tipping Points

I just finished reading Malcom Gladwell's The Tipping Point, and was wondering if anyone else had read it and had any stories to share about applying some of its ideas in your local church context. I am still sifting through the ideas that Gladwell proposes, but must admit I like the premise that small things can make a big difference in terms of starting/stopping trends/epidemics. It is refreshing to think that by taking a fresh look at the context and tweeking something here or there a church could have a radical (positive) impact on its community (internal and external!) - rather than try to completely redesign ministries or structures (which isn't necessarily a bad thing - just energy and time consuming!)

Grace and peace,
