1. You Must See We
It is important to see one another as whole people. Often times we see each other as transactional. We are to discover the gifts of one another as friends, to do that you must have conversation. Notice, Notice.
2. Learning Is Key
We learn the way, is the way we live. How we practice is how we act. We must be tactical in the way we learn and take journeys together. Take trips. We must fail to gain our freedom, we must document what we learn.
3. Must Break Rules
It is insanity to do things that aren’t working. Bury rules that stifle creativity. Grieve for things in our structure that stop us from growing, celebrating the relationships that come out of the things we buried! Reflect together about our trauma and healing!
4. Love Is What We Strive For!
Often time we see hate in our structure. How do we see love in the lives of the people we serve? Honor it? Build on it? And ask people to give what they love? It goes back to you must see me!
5. This Is Personal
We must find the threads in people lives! Stop asking and seeing peoples’ vocation, instead ask what fuels them and who supports and believes in them. Who loves them and who they love tells you a lot!
6. Develop a Gift Economy!
Getting people to share their gift is important, it is why we discover them!
7. Follow the Story As Well As the Investment
We often check boxes to prove what we are doing works or does not work, but often times we miss the important details because we miss qualitative information. Storytelling (art, poetry and other art are great data collectors) is important because it reveals threads that build capacity.
We are here to remember community not build it.
