Join us now and share the ministry. In this episode we have a discussion on applying the principles of open source software to the practice of Catholic ministry.
Amazingly, the two concepts turn out to be very compatible in their approaches of collaboration with people! We also discuss aspects of discernment in ministry and how what is experienced can be seen in the light of Christ’s own ministry on earth.
To more easily follow along in our discussion, please go to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Cathedral_and_the_Bazaar. The points that we discuss are listed on that page.
We also listened to a snippet of The Free Software Song by Richard Stallman. Mr. Stallman is one of the pioneers of the open source movement and the GNU Operating System project that is used extensively in systems such as GNU/Linux.
