We started Wrecked three years ago. I got my protege, Jeff Goins, to edit it.

 
With all of the stories, articles, and discussions that this
website has elicited, we still felt like we had something more to say.
 
So, Jeff wrote a manifesto and got it published by the secular online site Change This, where it has zoomed up to the top spot – most popular among all the manifestos it publishes (some from luminaries like Tom Peters). Jeff did an excellent job – I’m proud of the way he’s absorbed our message and made it accessible to so many beyond our normal networks. It’s provoking new discussions, ideas, and questions.
 
Here’s an excerpt:
Something is missing. Something important. Something necessary to
making a difference in the world. And most are afraid to find out what
it is.
 
This is a manifesto about the discovery process of finding what’s
missing. It’s not as glamorous as a get-rich-quick scheme or as mystical
as New Age spirituality. It doesn’t shine with the veneer of a car
salesman’s suit or catch your eye like a pretty girl.
 
No, it more likely
grabs your attention like a week-old bag of garbage sitting in the
corner or piques your interest like nails on a chalkboard. Yes, it’s
hard, but it can’t be denied.
Let me encourage you to read the manifesto here: Wrecked for the Ordinary – A manifesto for misftits

I'm motivated to join God in his global reclamation project. He's on the move, setting his sons and daughters free from their places of captivity. And he's partnering with those of us who have been freed to go and free others.
