A thought on Dr. Seuss’ birthday: Perhaps Christ-followers should be as creative in presenting the living, resurrected Jesus Christ as Dr. Seuss was in his books. (Or as William Booth and the first members of The Salvation Army were.)
I deduce that Dr. Seuss had a mind that was loose as a goose and he put it to good use to produce and unloose profuse encouragement to spruce up (and juice up) kids minds and introduce them to creativity. He needed no excuse to cut loose and produce rhymes — putting together such random words as duce, truce, zeus, moose & mousse, recluse, Bruce and caboose, and even overproduce and reintroduce.
“Innovators focus on the verbs. They’re proactive. They’re energetic. Innovators set out to create, to experiment, to inspire, to build on new ideas. Their techniques may at times seem unusual, but the results can be truly extraordinary.” Tom Kelley, The Ten Faces of Innovation.
