Traditioned innovation is a habit of being and living that cultivates a certain kind of moral imagination shaped by storytelling and expressed in creative, transformational action. Moral imagination is about character, which depends on ongoing formation that takes place in friendships and communities that embody traditions and that are sustained by institutions.

There is no quick-fix or set of techniques that will create a mindset of traditioned innovation. But we do believe that you can learn to cultivate it by

  • Becoming immersed in an imaginative engagement with the story of God told through Scripture
  • Learning from exemplary institutions, communities, and people practicing traditioned innovation.
  • Discovering new skills for integrating character formation and dense networks of friendships, communities and institutions into your leadership and life.

Navigating the Future will explore stories and tips for cultivating traditioned innovation that will stimulate your thinking and inspire your imagination for more faithful and fruitful living along with the cultivation of more vibrant, life-giving institutions.
