I’m attempting to embed a video that, in less than 2 minutes, consolidates my reasoning about why we need to connect more intentionally and effectively as Catholics to serve the world. I’ve often been frustrated that the communication system in the Church is top-down, rather than both top-down AND horizontal. The dimension of lay networks makes possible the integration of communication back to the Church and her leaders. I’m a huge fan of hierarchy, but I don’t think we’ll quite grow up until we learn to build effective community among ourselves, where Church doctrine is actualized in our lives and collaborations. I’d be very interested to hear your thoughts. This is, in a sense, a ‘homework’ assignment I’ve given myself after studying network theory for a while.
