I'm looking forward to your book. I remember interviewing Tally years back when I was at SBCV. A lot of your church planting stories are close to home for me. Can't wait to read it!

Ben,
Thanks for lunch yesterday. I'm excited your writing ministry. I'm going email a link to your blog to my dad.

Bless you!

Arlie

thanks Arlie and Justin...

I remember the church Tally planted in Chesapeake. I visited it one Sunday. I'm glad to hear he was able to branch out. I'm actually looking forward to your book, which says a lot because I gave up on church planting books a long time ago. It seems like you would be against (based on your research) parachute drops of all kinds unless they were in someone's hometown? One of the things I tell people that was good about our plant is that we lived in the city here for 2.5 years before the church launched. The amount of networking that built for us in the community is huge.

Chris,

I can't speak for Ben, but it looks like some of the rolling rocks and good ground examples are of people who were "parachuted in", but, they parachuted in to fertile soil.

I do remember more of the posts being about deep roots than the other 2.

Chris, I edited your comment slightly because while I appreciate a straight-shooter, that was a little mean spirited.

I don't condemn parachute drop plants. But I advocate the mentality of a missionary in those conditions. You'll see when the book comes out.

Sorry Ben...did not mean it in a mean way...no offense meant...I"m looking forward to your book.

no prob, thanks chris. i just didn't want salt on a wound
