Director's Notes:.

Let’s give the University Of Minnesota brand tagline Driven to Discover another look. The Institute has from its beginning sought to provoke insights for character development, edification, and the enrichment of community. It is a modest goal which cannot be wholesaled easily. We seek with each presentation increments of our inaugural topic by Paul Holmer, On Becoming A Human Being.
The best of our story tellers offer insights into who we are, our values, and what we believe. Good writers accomplish this with respect, dignity, and often enough, with good humor. They are wary of heavy handed judgment, and avert sarcasm, because they prize our dignity and privacy, yet may hold a mirror before us.
We as readers and hearers gain the prize of tears, laughter, a quickened passion
and sympathies. In short, stories reveal our humanity. We, you, are the grand discovery in stories.Brent Olson is a story teller and writer of first rank. He’ll be with us on the 26th at House Of Hope.
