As part of Co-Lab, there was a session entitled “The Theology of Innovation.” It’s a great video of two people sharing the story of their church and their quest to embrace innovation and be true to their Faith (which contrary to what many would think, and as the session presenters point out, a conflict between innovation and religious communities doesn’t have to exist.) There are also multiple other sessions on the Vimeo Co-Lab site on Future Trends, and the future of Non-Profits to name a few. They’re worth checking out.
Even if you’re not into Christianity, it’s a fascinating insight into how people react and deal with design thinking and innovative processes. These folks even went to IDEO for assistance in this process. (Next time, just give me a call )
Looking forward to your thoughts!
(Note on the video: When the woman speaks in the presentation, her microphone level is lower so you may have to turn up the presentation at those times.)
