The influence of culture...

I started watching the TV SciFi channel's retelling of the classic 70's show, Battlestar Galactica, when it first came out as a 2 part mini-series years ago. I noticed right off that it was going to cause a ripple because of how well the story was told...content, writing, acting, cinematography, etc. It had a style and attitude that refreshed the way to tell a good yarn.

I came across this article through a Facebook friend. This isn't just an example of how much TV can influence the current culture, but also of how important creative, compelling...dare I say it, beautiful pieces of art/work can influence the very conversations happening in the halls of leadership.

PS. It's important that we are involved in culture because of this example!

Happy St Patty's Day

Just wanted to share a moment from our day yesterday as we celebrated St Patrick's Day. You have to celebrate the Irish's biggest day in the USA when you are married to a woman with the maiden name of Kennedy. It's almost sacrilegious if you don't. So in the spirit of the one who brought the story of Jesus to the Emerald Isle. Slainte!!!
