think different

Many of you will recognize what follows as being from Apple, Inc’s marketing in the 1990’s. It may have been used for marketing but I think these words could have great impact on the church’s mindset. What if we thought about people this way?

Here’s to the crazy ones. 
The misfits. The rebels. 
The troublemakers. 
The round pegs in the square holes. 
The ones who see things differently.

They’re not fond of rules.
And they have no respect for the status quo.
You can praise them, disagree with them, quote them,
disbelieve them, gorify them or vilify them.
About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them.
Because they change things.
They invent. They imagine. They heal.
They explore. They create. They inspire.
They push the human race forward.
Maybe they have to be crazy.
How else can you stare at an empty canvas and see a work of art?
Or sit in silence and hear a song that’s never been written?
Or gaze at a red planet and see a laboratory on wheels?
We make tools for these kinds of people.
While some see them as the crazy ones, we see genius.
Because the people who are crazy enough to think they
can change the world, are the ones who do.
Think Different

What would the church look like? How would it affect our theology? What if we encouraged one another to think different?
