A Naked Pastor is Coming to Innovate

One of our guest speakers will be showing up next week as a Naked Pastor. It makes me really glad we've invited him to share about the innovative things they are doing as a church. Here's the deal straight from their website:

The lead pastor, Troy Gramling at Flamingo Road Church is getting naked! No...not that kind of naked, a new kind of naked. A nakedness that isn’t embarrassing; a nakedness that God would say is cool.

Troy will be on a 24-hour webcam for five weeks in four locations: house, car, hotel, and office. Every day, all day, we will see his life in a fishbowl - the good, the bad, the great, the ugly.

Why? Well, first, let us tell you why not--it is not too exalt him. Rather, to realize with him, that we are all fish in a bowl. The more transparent (naked) we get, the more God can do amazing things through us. We weren’t created to be people in hiding, concealment, or shame, we were created to be real, naked and unashamed.

This is cool...because the 24/7 webcam will be going during his trip to Granger at the Innovate conference. Another good reason to sign up (or just show up) for Innovate next week!
