To Err is Human

Perfection.  Most of us think that it is the goal of the spiritual life, but according to Brene Brown (who we just featured through a TED Talk a few weeks ago), our struggle for perfection is really the result of a spiritual crisis.

To be perfectly frank, this is one of those interviews everyone should listen to a couple of times a year.  In addition to Brene Brown, Mary Hynes interviews Bruce Mau, the much celebrated Canadian designer, about failure and creativity.

I should tell you that this interview has provided pearls of wisdom for many homilies, but also introduced me to Mau’s Incomplete Manifesto for Growth, which has become a starting place for many of my own thoughts since then.
