Who’s not here?

“Who’s not here?” might be the most important unasked question.*
(Seth Godin)

Every day, we have access to vast amounts of information that we unconsciously collect. […] If we train ourselves to become more observant, if we pay attention – to our surroundings, to other people, to what’s happening that shouldn’t be, or what’s not happening that should be – our most mundane experiences can fuel our boldest and most brilliant ideas.**
(Bernadette Jiwa)

Some of the most important life-changing and planet-changing meetings of people have never occurred.  Right now, there are people who have contributions to make with others that will never emerge because they will not meet each other.

Of course, there are millions upon millions of such possible encounters waiting to happen, or not.  Life seems to be most dynamic in these accidental encounters.  One of the good things about the internet is that it makes more of them possible.

Church is now possible everywhere.
