Evan Feinberg, Executive Director of the Stand Together Foundation, joined the June 16th Town Hall to talk with Dave Hillis and Cornelius Williams about how The Stand Together Foundation is thinking about Abundance in their work with non-profits across the US. Stand Together works to build social movements that unlock ingenuity and enable people to come together to create value in communities by identifying, recruiting, and cultivating a community of dynamic entrepreneurs who are leading a movement to break the cycle of poverty in America.

We were also joined by Lexington Leadership Foundation President Eric Geary.  Eric shared about the recent spate of gun violence in Lexington and how LLF is working with the city of Lexington to help serve. Eric also talked about the work he directs at Leadership Foundations’ Global Youth Initiative

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.
