Community in the Inventive Age
Pagitt, Doug (Author)
We live in a period of cultural transition - from the Information Age to the Inventive Age. This change requires new ways of organizing, new outcomes, and new approaches in every area of society, including faith communities.
Pagitt shows how a congregation can respond to the Inventive Age by rethinking leadership patterns, catalyzing collaboration, and encouraging artistic expression. Community in the Inventive Age highlights ten values shaping culture and the path forward for church communities in this time of transition.
