"Growth doesn't come from persuading the most loyal members of other tribes to join you. ... Instead you'll find fertile ground among seekers, among people who desire the feeling they get when they're a part of a vibrant, growing tribe, but who are still looking for that feeling ... I'm talking about people at the fringes ... Begin ... with passionate individuals who haven't been embraced by other tribes yet. As you add more and more people like these, your options become safer and more powerful -- then you'll see the others join you."
Sounds like Seth was writing to churches, but, really, his focus is on leadership in the workplace. However he defines tribes as groups whose individuals who have something in common.The list is potentially endless.

How else can we possibly shine our light into the darkness?
