10 Things Church Can Learn From Geeks – The Huffington Post

9 Feb

I found this great article, and being a GEEK, myself- I had to share it with my readers.  You may not agree with all of it.  (I never ask or hope that you will with anyone’s work – not even my own.  Unless, I am right.)

It’s more like I bathe in the geeky goodness of the culture — much like Harry Potter’s face in a pensieve. While there’s plenty to denounce about geek culture (like sexism, just to name one), there’s also plenty the Church can learn from it.
