"Thanks and thanks again to Him who offers to the man whom the sorrows of life have assaulted and left naked–offers to him the fig leaf of the Word with which he can cover his wretchedness." -Søren Kierkegaard

An Idea Worth Living—Jeremy Courtney’s TED Talk

Posted in Friends, Preemptive Love Coalition, Videos, Videos By Others by matt on Monday, April 16, 2012

I re-watched Jeremy’s TEDxAustin talk the other day and felt compelled to share it with you. I’ve tried to stick to an every-Friday posting schedule—and even then my writing here is marked by brevity—but here I’m deviating (though this will still be brief).

This video simultaneously explains what we do and reminds why we do it, and, since several of you are recent subscribers, I thought it’d be good to share a little more about our work in Iraq.

Within the organization, I’m the resident blogger (thus the brevity), social media maven nerd, PR handler, photographer, etc. etc.

Nutshell therein: I get to use words and images to make people care. It’s a sweet job.

And the man in the video is the jefe, a good friend, and one of the most awesome people I know (and I don’t “awesome” easily these days). So if you’re still reading this, WTFrag? Go watch the video already!

(And then pass it on!)
