If you are like me sometimes people don't seem to always understand what I'm trying to say. I'm a quiet kind of guy. Sometimes I mumble. Sometimes I ramble on and complicate what should be a simple answer or explanation in a conversation.
Many churches are like me in the way they communicate. They mumble. They ramble. They communicate ideas in a complex way when in fact the ideas can be communicated very simply .
Sound familar? Is this your church, or a church you know?
If you are like me and need help with your church communications like I strongly recommend Less Clutter. Less Noise by Kem Meyer. Kem's book will equip you with simple strategies for getting the word out. It is helping me on my journey to cut through the clutter and noise of people's lives and communicate with increased simplicity and clarity. Her ultimate goal is to help people take their next step towards Jesus. Pretty cool huh?
I heard ahead of time that it was pretty good so I brought two copies, one to read and one to give to other staff to read so we could be more aligned in our thinking.
Just like last week's book giveaway, I think it is so good that I'm putting my money where my big Australian mouth is. I'm giving away a copy of the book.

For the rest of you, you can buy the book here. It's brilliant. Don't miss it.
PS. I'm stumping up the dough for this. There is no behind the scenes marketing going on. It's just a great book.
