In the last year or so, the Austin Stone Worship Collective shifted from only monthly fellowship meals to alternating between fellowship gatherings one month and trainings the next. The trainings, held on Saturday mornings, cover almost anything related to artists and faith. Some months, the trainings look like breakout sessions. Other months, they involve guest speakers who range from film directors to storytellers.
When the call is uncertain, you pause. You do not pass go. You do not collect $200. You may go around the board a few times, but you hoard your money as best you can. You do not make any rash purchasing decisions, not even if you land on Boardwalk or Park Place, your favorite properties. You wait. You become still.
