What does innovation mean to you? Most people think of innovation as being all about the latest invention, the newest technology, the most recent breakthrough. This is not true. Perhaps the most innovative era in church history was the time of Martin Luther and the Reformation. In this session, we will learn about Martin Luther and innovation so that you can start to apply similar principles to your own context. After all, innovation is not new – the past informs the present and shapes our future.
Dave Raley is a consultant, speaker, and writer with a unique ability to teach ancient insights to modern audiences in fresh ways. He offers simple, practical insights on how you can be more effective in your leadership or organization today.
Dave will take us through three topics:
1) The Myth of Martin Luther the Lone Innovator
2) The 5 Great Lessons on Innovation from Luther and the Reformation
3) How to Apply those Lessons Today
