    Katharine Hayhoe – "Our future is still in our hands"

    Katharine Hayhoe – "Our future is still in our hands"

    Katharine Hayhoe is one of the most esteemed atmospheric scientists in the world. She’s made her mark by connecting dots between climate systems and weather patterns and the lived experience of human beings in their neighborhoods and communities. She’s also an ambassador, if you will, between the science of climate change and the world of evangelical Christian faith and practice, which she also inhabits. To delve into that with her is to learn a great deal that refreshingly complicates the picture of what is possible and what is already happening, even across what feel like cultural fault lines. If you want to speak and walk differently on this frontier, this is a conversation for you.

    Darnell Moore and dream hampton — The Future of Hope 2

    Darnell Moore and dream hampton — The Future of Hope 2

    We’re in a time as thick with uncertainty as with possibility. Many of us are still, and again, exhausted — and yet opening, fitfully, to what we’ve learned and have been called to at this moment in the life of the world. Toward nourishing that, the second offering in our new series, The Future of Hope, with social creative Darnell Moore in conversation with filmmaker dream hampton. The influence they wield spans hip-hop to Netflix to the Oscars; from the Movement for Black Lives to Surviving R. Kelly.
    It is an honor to enter this tender, intimate conversation between two dear friends. In them we experience a muscular hope in justice oriented toward redemption — and calling out in a spirit of “calling in.”

    Mike Rose – The Deepest Meanings of Intelligence and Vocation

    Mike Rose – The Deepest Meanings of Intelligence and Vocation

    “I grew up a witness,” Mike Rose wrote, “to the intelligence of the waitress in motion, the reflective welder, the strategy of the guy on the assembly line. This then is something I know: the thought it takes to do physical work.” Mike Rose died in August, yet the particular way he saw the world resonates more than ever before as our debates about the future of school and work only intensify. He argued with care and eloquence that we risk too narrow a view of the way the physical, the human, and the cognitive blend in all kinds of learning and in all kinds of labor. Mike Rose’s intelligence would enlarge our civic imagination on big subjects at the heart of who we are — schooling, social class, and the deepest meaning of vocation.

    Priya Parker — Remaking Gathering: Entering the Mess, Crossing the Thresholds

    Priya Parker — Remaking Gathering: Entering the Mess, Crossing the Thresholds

    Priya Parker has become the voice of what it means to gather in this world we inhabit now. She is helping remake the “how” of coming together — and more importantly, the “why.” Long before the pandemic, she points out, we had fallen into rote forms for staff meetings, birthday parties, conferences, shared meals. Virtual or physical, this time of regathering offers a threshold we can decide to cross with imagination, purpose, and joy. This is a conversation with so much to walk away from and put immediately into practice.

Krista gets to the heart of the interview

Krista is such an amazing interviewer (and human). I love the unique, refreshing topics she brings up, and the depth of her interviews - she knows exactly what questions to ask to get her guests top open and share amazing insights, stories, and basically the depths of the soul. Highly recommended.

💜Future of Hope series!!

This latest w/ Darnell Moore and dream hampton is such a great balance of doing the work without needing all the answers, of hope with eyes open, calling out and calling in. Thank you to the On Being staff for turning over the platform to create a place for these conversations. Love Krista’s interviews but also love the idea that others can energize this space.
