What’s Changing and are we doing any good?
Recently, Bob Nuber, Pinnacle Forum Northwest Chairman asked this question…
On May 19, breakfast participants at the Pinnacle Forum Community Breakfast were given the answer with a resounding,”Yes!” Several leaders from our community shared about their life and how they were changing and engaging the culture with the values of Jesus. Barry Horn, Senior Vice President and board director of Guild Mortgage shared how his experience in Guatemala serving a village challenged him to start thinking about changing our city. With a group of friends Barry founded Liberty Road Foundation to build a working relationship between business and non-profits to meet the social need of our community. Steve Pelluer, a commercial real estate agent and former NFL and University of Washington quarterback shared how changing the culture starts on the inside and that for him that means loving his wife and family effectively. Donna Hart, Director of Labor Relations with the US Government shared how her heart was touched with the tragedy of human trafficking when she began investigating sweat shops. For three days she simply wept before deciding to do something about this tragic world blight. Peter Cline, founder and CEO of Auxano Advisors shared how a group of businessmen decided to spread the word to other business leaders about gaining a Christian world view by holding seminars on “Doing Business God’s Way.” Dr. Chip Kimball, Lake Washington School District Superintendent shared how his district has made a commitment to tell the truth and how difficult it is in our complex social environment. Finally, Dr. Ward Tanneberg, Excecutive Director for CASA shared how the original Pinnacle Forum member started turning his life around at 80 years of age… The turn came at the foot of a burning bush…His name was Moses.
Conclusion: We must be doing something good….
