PODCAST 120: Sam George, Diaspora Ekklesia & A Mobile God



I’m guilty of many things in life. I admit before you publicly that I occasionally overstate things to prove a point, but when I tell you here that there are multiple times in this conversation you can hear my head literally explode, well, that’s an overstatement too. What is not an overstatement is that Sam George challenged me in a way that no one ever has before.

Sam George is a specialist of sorts, specifically on diasporatic movements. If Ekklesia is the gathering of God’s Church than Diaspora is the scattering of His Church. And, as Sam tells me, God moves in that scattering and in the subsequent regathering.

We’re talking topics we don’t often hit on The Church Digital Podcast. Global Church. Multicultural Church. Persecution. Revival. Walking away from this conversation, I did have one thought come to mind. My view of the future digital church is too small and this conversation with Sam George just scratches the surface of the necessity of digital influence for tomorrow’s (and even today’s) church.
