Starting a new thing

Here's a link to some helpful reflections on starting a new community. Bob Hyatt gives a critical evaluation of the "10 Keys to Effective Church Planting" -- thankfully leading us out of the madness of a marketing/managerial approach (focus on "effectiveness" and numbers) to a more organic and holistic approach (focus on "faithfulness" and community). I think his advice in #6, "quit being a builder, try being a gardener," gets the metaphor just right.
