I went to listen to a well-known American preacher recently and he said that if you want to communicate well then find some people who do it and learn from them. He said that he learnt his trade from American stand-up comics. To this end, I enjoyed watching Malcolm Gladwell (author of the Tipping point) speak about spaghetti sauce as the source of happiness. He is a real communicator. Not only is it interesting stuff but he is a brilliant at conveying it. It's called 'What we can learn from Spaghetti sauce' and if you've ever wondered why American's have so many varieties of everything here's why.
Also, the Desiring God conference audio is now available in audio and video for ipod download HERE and to keep your toes tapping my friend Pip discovered this rather good tune called 'Fade into you' by Mazzy Star. Enjoy.
