Boxes: Your View of Space

July 30, 2017

Boxes: Your View of Space - This week, we gathered at Minnehaha Falls! What a beautiful place to be Jacob’s Well. Did you know that the only reason we can enjoy this space today is a leader who broke down the expectation boxes of people more than 100 years ago? Theodore Wirth came to Minneapolis in 1904 with wild ideas that became parks and changed everything. Question: What opportunities surround you right now that you have never recognized because you only see what others see? It’s time to take a look.

Here's the message outline on our Sunday paper. Find other resources like discussion guides at www.jacobs-well.net/leftovers. Also watch for our regular "Leftovers" podcasts where we talk through other ideas and parts of the message that ended up on the cutting room floor.

Boxes: Disrupting the Classroom

July 23, 2017

Boxes: Disrupting the Classroom “We’ve never done it that way before” are famously the 7 last words of any institution. Education is an institution we can’t let expire, but something has to die - maybe it’s the way we do it. Brenda Cassellius, State Commissioner of Education and Jacob’s Well groupie, has a fire in her belly for this. She is ready to help Minnesota face hard realities and guide us to new possibilities. We all need a Brenda in our lives because we all have some classrooms that need disrupting.

Boxes: Making Life Miserable - On Purpose

July 18, 2017

Hopefully you aren't listening with the hopes of us making you feel all better, because Charles Carlson doesn’t do that. A Jacob’s Well-er and Metro Transit Sr Mgr, Charles is helping plan the four year chaos of I-35W, Minnesota’s busiest highway and right in our neighborhood. He joins Greg to fill us in on what we won’t be able to do in our cars for years, and to nudge us to look at our own lives and why we would choose disruption to accomplish something important. And what we can do to not just survive, but thrive through it.

What Else Can You Do?

July 12, 2017

In this Leftovers Podcast, we talk about competence and what it may look like to step out from beneath its shadow and grow in the places where we lack it! Melissa Lock, Greg Meyer, and Chris Tripolino dive right in to this conversation inspired by this week's conversation with our friend Eddie Hamilton.

Boxes: What Else Can You Do?

July 9, 2017

Jacob’s Well-er, artist and Special Education teacher, Eddie Hamilton, has good reason to stick with what he can do, but he doesn’t. He explores outside his boxes. This spring he gave a TEDx talk about what he is learning and it speaks volumes to what each of our struggles to balance the comfort of what we know and are competent at, and the unknown possibilities lying just outside our grasp. Get ready to consider “what else you can do” with Greg and Eddie!
