Wednesday Potpourri

::: Sam posts from Buckingham and StrengthsFinder on the myths that holds us back.
MYTH 3: A good team member does whatever it takes to help the team.
TRUTH 3: A good team member deliberately volunteers his strengths to the team most of the time.

::: An interview with Rodney Stark [via Reinhold]
- One thing about religious truths is that we have to take them on faith, and faith needs reassurance. What’s more reassuring than noticing that some other people, whom you admire, are so certain that it’s all true that they’re willing to go the ultimate mile?
- What Christianity gave to its converts was nothing less than their humanity.
- People value religion on the basis of cost, and they don’t value the cheapest ones the most. Religions that ask nothing get nothing. You’ve got a choice: you can be a church or a country club. If you’re going to be a church, you’d better offer religion on Sunday.
