Guess what? It’s possible to have an honest conversation…and still keep a relationship. It’s true! A few weeks back, an industry friend reached out and said, “I know these two incredible people making a film, and I think you’d love to talk to them!” Turns out, she was right! Our new friends, Craig and Andrea, were set to create a film that talks about racial reconciliation in a new light. This has been something that we have become increasingly aware of as a culture, but truthfully…the way these two have created space for this dialogue is new and fresh. Through it, they have modeled what it could look like for others conversations like it to happen as well. I left this interview inspired as a creative hopeful for our tables and culture. I know you will too! You can expect to hear:
An important note to the closet creative and dreamer
Balancing authenticity and triggers in our current culture
How to have difficult conversations and maintain relationships
The important role music has in storytelling
How to be aware of our own biases
How Mercy & Me was designed in a way that no one feels attacked but rather everyone feels that they have the words they need to feel heard on all sides.
The three of us instantly connected and that led to a really fun, really authentic conversation that you will NOT want to miss!
I was living in Thailand, longed for community, starting opening my door and filling my table. Now I’m living ‘charcuterie’ as a way of life and teaching what I learned about living intentionally everyday.
