Our friend, Jon Hinkson, does a wonderful job of explaining Yale’s rich, Christian heritage. Here is a sample:
I was interviewed on why and how adults should be lifelong learners. This interview captures much that has animated my ministry for many years:
In his book, he relates an entertaining anecdote from the airline industry. A baggage handler broke a musician’s $3,000 guitar, and the musician spent nine months working through the airline’s labyrinthine phone system to no avail. Finally he wrote a song about it, put it on YouTube and got more than 1 million views. The airline’s stock price fell 10 percent, costing shareholders more than $180 million, roughly 60,000 times the value of the original guitar.
My own reflection on this important piece by Alan Jacobs:

My friend, Nate Bridgman, sent this my way. A terrific talk with major implications for both Christian and secular organizations.
Good succinct reflection from actor, Chris Evans:
