Mark Driscoll hosted the Resurgence 2013 Conference this week.  I was able to stream some of it late in the evening and early in the morning.  In his opening address, he spoke out against tribalism.  It’s the dangerous trend that we get stuck in the way our group does church and tend to think that everyone else are foolish.

Just think about it: how often do you hear people talk, post updates, tweet this, hashtag that in an attempt to convince the world that their tribe is better than yours?  Unfortunately, in the process of everyone lifting high the name of their tribes, the name of Jesus is lost somewhere in the process.

Here is a clip of his opening address.  Really think about this concept and see if it hits home.
