“We have two ears and one mouth and we should use them proportionally”
Susan Cain, author of Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking
Over the past year we’ve made commitments to you and to all of us in the Fresh Expressions movement to listen. We passionately want to be people who are quiet enough to hear your stories and to empower you to tell your story to others. Whilst the temptation in a wide network of people is to shout out of view of things, we want instead to be quiet and allow those in the grassroots of this movement to speak.
It’s always hard to provide moments where these stories can be told though and to that end Tim Lea and Mike Moynagh have come up with a beautifully crazy idea.
We’ll let Tim explain…
We’re excited that Tim and Mike will be getting around the country to meet you.
Mike Moynagh is a writer and theologian who’s fueled a lot of innovation across the movement. Books like ‘Church in Every Context’ and his latest ‘Church in Life’ have provided crucial theological resources for practitioners.
Tim Lea is a networker and is brilliant at enabling and supporting other people. Tim is currently connecting a growing Associates network. Tim is a Pioneer in the Hinckley area and is an experienced member of the Fresh Expressions community.
Together we think they make a fantastic team.
