Sam Davidson's blog

Every Tuesday, I write.

I share an idea I’ve come up with, a struggle I’m wrestling with, a puzzle I’m turning over in my head, or a story that I think the world needs to hear. You can sign up to get these emailed to you each Tuesday morning by clicking here

On Thursdays, I write at Batch about a business idea or concept, usually through the lens of my day-to-day work as co-founder and CEO or from the viewpoint and lessons learned of our purveyors. Follow along here

On LinkedIn and Twitter I often toss out quick thoughts and ideas that aren’t ready for longer posts just yet or something that I’m seeking feedback on. 

If you'd like to get more ideas like these sent to you each day, it's easy: sign up here.


 

Things to Check Out - 10.22.07

And it's Monday:

Imagine a hundred people sitting in a circle around a multi-colored sphere. The colors appear to run longitudinally on the sphere. Each person around the circle has a singular perspective of the sphere and can only see, at best, fifty-percent of the totality. No individual can see 360-degrees. To understand the half of the sphere a person cannot see, there must be a willingness to listen to the person who can see the other half, or to get up and walk around the sphere to experience all of it. Imagine that the sphere represents God. No individual, no individual faith, no individual religion, can perceive the totality of God. It is impossible. There has to be a willingness to listen to and understand the perspectives of other faiths. This takes time and is not likely to happen within the walls of one church. My journey to find a connection with the Divine has led me away from the singular authoritarian perspective of the church of my childhood and has led me down the path of diversity and inclusivity.
