Len Wilson, Interview #51

I am a worship designer, an author, a speaker, a small business owner, anadjunct professor, a media artist/producer, and a daddy.
Your two favorite books:
The Bible
Curious George Flies a Kite
Why you are interested in spirituality? I am not very interested in spirituality, per se. I am actually a very pragmatic kind of person. I have to be reminded of God's work in the world and in my life. I believe that experiencing God is often in the doing, not the being. I guess that makes me a good Methodist.
Your favorite quote: "We tend to overestimate the effect of a technology in the short run and underestimate the effect in the long run." - Roy Amara
Your favorite web sites: This fall: Fivethirtyeight.com
In general: Facebook.com
Your hero? Clint Eastwood is a hero because he has transformed himself into a real artistic filmmaker, and he got there by balancing commercial fare (like The Rookie, with Charlie Sheen, in 1987) with personal projects (like The Bird,about Charlie Parker, in 1988).
A spiritual lesson you hope to learn? Patience and trust are never in enough supply.
A place in the world where you feel spiritually "connected?" Hanging out with a group of other Christians.
