The zero-sum/either-or paradigm is becoming less and less relevant, especially to Gen-Y and lower.
Just saw this commercial comparing the Kindle to the iPad. The thing for me is that I love the Kindle AND the iPad. I own an iPad (a gift), and I am definitely considering asking for a Kindle as a gift. As I’ve traveled many of the power-traveler/business-person own both.
Same seems true for ministry; even when one ministry is clearly “better” than another (not in terms of value, but in size, health, and maturity) I’ve seen people highly reticent to acknowledge either/or thinking.
I’d love to see Amazon do a campaign showing how the Kindle COMPLEMENTS the iPad. Rather than point out the deficiencies highlight the values of having both (one that’s easy to read by the pool, the other that’s awesome for surfing the web, checking email, and watching Netflix in your room).

Have you seen the zero-sum/either-or paradigm drop in favor amongst those you’re leading?
