Well, I am actually neither a bonafide geek or a real rockstar. What is important is how funny it is that I can look like either with a simple haircut . What is even more important is the idea of “both and” and why labeling people or our ministries as one-all-or-nothing entities is old school. Either we evangelize or we disciple people. Either we are growing or not healthy. Either we have conflict or loving relationships in a staff.
The fact is that the law of “both and” pervade every area of our lives, making it a messy endeavor. It would be much easier to simply be one thing. We are told in business books to copy the In-n-Out model and just do hamburgers. What is interesting is that you can get that hamburger is so many ways that it could be that your options with variations supercede the smorgousbord approach entirely.
Imagine this: choice and simplicity? Or, to not be so serious, could I be both a rockstar and a geek?
