Charlie shares a wonderful story about how this podcast has opened some doors at his work. Then Brad and Wayne interact with other emails about creating community that offers a safe environment by putting relationships first, as a family does. Too many times a genuine move of God gets curtailed by those who seek to "steward" it, but only end up in a misguided attempt to control it. In the end what might have begun as God's gift ends up possessing them just like the ring of power in the Lord of the Rings. Though well-intentioned they change the dynamics from sharing real friendships to trying accomplish a task and then relationships are destroyed. This fits Marshall McLuhan observation that "We shape our tools, and then our tools shape us." Unless we put relationship first and free each other to be their own life in God we'll never discover the real joy of God's kind of community.
