New Mission Statement

Here is the new Burnside Writers Collective mission statement:
We are a community of storytellers, relating and retelling the stories that surround us and bind us together, the stories that are born every day, and the Story that has always been and is unfolding even now. We are a community of readers who believe that the most incisive analyses of modern life must come from creative thinkers and careful students of Jesus. We believe it is through our imagination that we can understand, love, and be at peace with other people and the planet we all share. The Burnside Writers Collective is a refuge where this work of the imagination can take place.


  1. You might want to add something about, "And, we know Donald Miller."

    Just a thought.

  2. Crap, I'm going to have to "tell stories" now? I was hoping to just post Youtube clips.

  3. Where's the part about money, Bentelys, and bling?

  4. I love the "careful students of Jesus" line. Well said.

  5. Dan --

    You can continue to post YouTube videos as long as you keep telling stories about The Jonas Brothers. That way, I can keep teasing you mercilessly....
