Yeah, I just went to YouTube for something to add to what I was going to say about being missional and those were among the top in my search, and Tim Keller seemed to say what I was thinking far far better! Plus, he's speaking from experience. He has a lot of videos out there on YouTube, all surrounding a conference he spoke at in '06 (dealing with the topic of being missional).
