holy cow, what an amazing TED talk! tony jones mentioned this one on his blog, and it blew me away. sure, it’s got a bit of a humanistic edge to it; but there’s so much truth and beauty in the ideas that a civilization’s character will be their legacy, not their design or technology or other advances. i was so quickly thinking these things:
1. man, i wish i could present like that. so clear, focused, winsome, humble, engaged, and articulate.
2. wow, i hope every presenter at The Summit brings it like that.
3. our legacy in youth ministry will be the character of our ministries, not our flair (design) or programs (technology).
