For Your Inspiration (FYI) with Kevin Sweeney

Longtime member of BoxJelly Jasmine Slovak has set into motion a new Monday morning talk series called For Your Inspiration (FYI). While the event feels more like a candid conversation over coffee than a presentation, Slovak hopes to create a forum for speaking about staying motivated through setbacks, frustrations, and failures. Kicking off the first FYI was Kevin Sweeney, founder of Imagine, an urban church in Honolulu that is building a more inclusive, progressive Christian community. Sweeney has a master’s in Theology and Intercultural Studies, is a BoxJelly member, and shares a great affinity with industrious, imaginative entrepreneurs.

The topic for this talk was community building. Sweeney spoke from personal experiences about growing an idea beyond his living room, and creating a movement of individuals working towards a common goal.

He believes that “Human beings have been created to  flourish in the context of thriving relationships. There’s no substitute for people who are willing to be with you along the journey.”

One take away was that community is the solution to the problems we can’t solve alone. That scaling that community creates the culture wish to create. But it starts with the individual.

“Those moments when you want to quit are a sign that you’re moving forward and growing.”

When things get uncomfortable in the process of growing your community, Sweeney reassured everyone that “the least likely places you go are the most likely places you’ll grow.” 

The next FYI event will be on Monday, August 27th from 7:30am-8:30am. Coffee and pastries will be provides by Morning Glass. For more information or to RSVP check out our Facebook page. All photos by Tommy Pierucki of PineappleSunrise.
