What if the Church was flatter?

I am reading "The World is Flat" by Thomas Freidman. I get so inspired when I read this book thinking of all the ways in which the church could and should change in order to reach people who find church antiquated and irrelevant. The thought of AHUMC beginning a business which employs the homeless in order to give them a job and lift themselves out of poverty is something I wish I knew how to do. What if we gave out micoloans? What if we were like those restaurants we hear about which employ the homeless? How do you do this? I think this is why I am still very hopeful for the church. The church has so many resources, skill sets and abilities which I do not have. I wish I were better at pitching ideas and getting people on board with them. Is that the role of a pastor of a church community?
