Dr. Seuss Put The Juice To Unloose & Produce Innovation

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.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I co-lead a non-traditional expression of the body of Christ in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia" that is available in Kindle & paperback @ http://amzn.to/2nCr5dP
