The three video clips used in the latest workshop were shown primarily to encourage participants to recognise that it is impossible to see and experience anything new if we continue simply to do everything we have always done in the same way as we have always done them. These three TEDx recordings featuring Janine Shepherd, Katie Sabira Rubin and Pat Soloman respectively speak for themselves and the connection for the purpose of the workshop is simply that each one encourages us to move out of our on comfort zones in order to experience and to embrace something completely different.
Faith is not about sticking to what we have always done, always believed and always practised. Faith calls us out and up and into what is completely new. There is the world of a difference between holding onto what we have always believed and opening ourselves to the truth. We cannot do both. The two are mutually exclusive.
These are all impressive talks. See the connections, make the connections and be prepared to begin your own journey.
