Progress Requires Disruption

Posted on July 14th, 2019

Creative disruption is a beautifully healthy thing. It freaks out the status quo folks, but we would wither without the artists and leaders.

"It is the business of the future to be dangerous. The major advances in civilization are processes that all but week the societies in which they occur."
-Alfred North Whitehead

Contentment in the Journey of the Continuing Story

Posted on May 31st, 2019

"Grace is so nonsensical it doesn’t play into the facts, the narrative or the truth as we see it...the resolve is only as good as the tension."
-Joel Houston

thoughts from Gandhi about the Beatitudes

Posted on February 20th, 2019

We’re thinking about next calendar year and what series topics we might schedule. One of our thoughts is the Sermon on the Mount. I really like the idea. I have had this card at my desk for years. It’s a great reminder of what is worth upholding


Without Access to Hope, Fear Takes Over

I voice-texted this final line of the podcast into Evernote from my phone while listening back on October 17, 2018 at 9:02 PM. I just pulled up the link to share: https://www.npr.org/templates/transcript/transcript.php?storyId=657547685


Ispire Hope and Wonder

Posted on October 4th, 2018

As a creative, it’s important for me to remember that wonder belongs and is in all people…
People are longing for the wonderful. Imagine, hope, long for; creating a glimpse of the wonder that we as artists see…
I can inspire people reveal depth in beauty by crafting moving experiences and to breathe in hope and redemption to storytelling. It is a responsibility to move people to respond to the wonder of hope. To engage. To join. To be with. To partner. To dream further and increase in wonder.

I went to the Story Conference the other week. I was just reflecting on my journaling from the conference. This section of scribbles jumped out at me today and I thought I would share what I’m contemplating.

Love is Greatest Art

Posted on September 25th, 2018

“The more I think it over, the more I feel that there is nothing more truly artistic than to love people."
—Van Gogh

My friend John shared the quote in a meeting yesterday. I asked him to send it to me so I could share in this post. He did one better and took a photo of the page in the book (Windows of the Soul by Ken Gire) that he read it from. I thought about simply posting the quote, but honestly love this whole page that he sent me. Therefore I share that as well!

The Importance of Humility

Posted on August 27th, 2018

"Humility is not thinking less of yourself, but thinking of yourself less."
—C.S. Lewis

I came across this quote today and find it a great reminder. We care about legacy and want to lead well. It’s important to remember that we cannot truly succeed by trying to be better than others in a competitive nature. Such narcissistic thinking is a zero-sum strategy. It will backfire. Instead, it is far more virtuous to think less of self and care more for the greater team. Such focus will yield so much greater fruit - not only in the charge of the task, but in life.
