Porn and Pancakes… At Church?

You betcha! Got your attention? Sure did.

That picture was taken at my church, Southbrook, in Dayton. They are advertising a breakfast where they’ll be discussing the dangers of porn addiction. If you visit their website, you can download Internet accountability software and pair up with online “support buddies.” No, I didn’t attend the breakfast. But, I was pretty curious after seeing the XXX.Church.com sign in our foyer. Seth Godin would call it a “Purple Cow” something certainly remarkable.

This church is pretty progressive. On their website, you can listen to podcasts of previous sermons, interact in their online community and engage in blog posts. They are way more innovative than 90% of the businesses in our industry.

What did I realize in church that Sunday?

There is a huge gap between the innovations taking place in our personal lives and those taking place at work.
