Director of Operations, Colangelo Carpenter Innovation Center

We were excited to continue our conversation on “Imagining Abundance” and had the great fortune of being joined by Kerry Alys Robinson, from whose book we borrowed the name of this series. Kerry was the founding executive director of Leadership Roundtable and is the author of “Imagining Abundance: Fundraising, Philanthropy and a Spiritual Call to Service”. Dave and Cornelius talk with her about the universal call to be a catalyst for generosity.

Also with us this week is Anthony Branch, President & COO of Memphis Leadership Foundation to share the work that they are doing in their city.

What book, movie, quote, or tv show has most shaped your understanding of leadership or the city?   

A quote that has shaped my understanding of leadership and the city is, “Do not be daunted by the enormity of the world’s grief. Do justly now, love mercy now, walk humbly now. You are not obligated to complete the work, but neither are you free to abandon it.”

While the amount of work there is to do to transform cities is great, this quote reminds me that we are freed from having to complete it all, though our obligation to continue remains. We may never see a huge transformation in our lifetime. The work stretches far beyond us. However, this does not make our acts of faithfulness in the day to day less significant, no matter how small they may seem.
