Saturday: Capacity and Plodding
There’s a wonderful TED Talk by author Elizabeth Gilbert on creativity that has a brilliant nugget for pastors. She says, “I’m a mule, and the way that I have to work is I have to get up at the same time every day, and sweat and labor and barrel through it really awkwardly.”
How does the image of faithful daily plodding (and for her, the intersection of “mulishness” and a sort of divine creative spirit) inform your desire to get started building your faith community and the leadership of your community?
