Seven questions... with David Wynd aka @phoce
I've had the pleasure of getting to know David Wynd aka @phoce over the last wee while via Twitter. He is an encouragement to me... someone who has desire to move things forward... using all the talents and gifts given to him. I would love to meet with him... drink coffee and talk with him... worship with him.
I caught up with him via email and asked him my seven questions...
1) Who are you and what do you do?
My name is David and I am a minister in the Methodist Church.
2) What are you working on at the moment?
A number of things; Starting a new Christian community where I live and work, working with a charity combining football and mentoring, looking at ways of making preaching/church more creative, blogging for Artists for Christ and the network connected with them, messing with stencil art and free art.
3) Who inspires you?
- Name an artist who has inspired you.
- Name a place that has inspired you.
I love Scotland and particularly Edinburgh
- Name some "thing" that has inspired you.
A bit abstract but i am going for grace
4) What drives you to do what you do?
Wanting to see positive transformations in people and places
5) What values do you wish your creativity to express?
I want the creative things I do to point towards the possibility of transformation but most of all I want it to ask questions of people and challenge them.
6) What role does community play in what you do?
Vital. Community is so important and finding the right one is not easy. I have moved from one I felt very at home in to one that is very different with and I have had to find other community's to help keep me going in different ways.
7) What is next for what you do?
Lots of exciting things. My wife and I have our first child on the way in May, we should be in the first stages of developing the new community by then as well and there are always lots of other bits of inspiration I want to grab hold of and see where they may take me so I will have to wait and see.
Thank you David... please follow David on Twitter (@phoce)
