Watch this video link below. Don’t think about watching it. Don’t put it off to later in a busy day. Just watch it. Right now. This 20 minutes will be a great investment:

The Cathedral of Saint John’s in the Wilderness in Denver Colorado is about to mobilize, gather, express and harvest its collective longings for its life – a very vulnerable act.
This Episcopalian woman has changed my life as has her book The Gifts of Imperfection (http://www.amazon.com/dp/159285849X/?tag=googhydr-20&hvadid=53909621918&hvpos=1t1&hvexid=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=4024349523966649828&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=b&hvdev=c&ref=pd_sl_8vj6hoxpfc_b) . Please, take 20 minutes and watch this Ted Talk. Consider how what she says might change your life, your day, your family, our Dream Together Conference and your perspective on life.
