Vision and purpose

Build a heritage of wholeness, trust, and loving service

Suppose we have only dreamed, or made up, all those things—trees and grass and sun and moon and stars and Aslan himself. Suppose we have. Then all I can say is that, in that case, the made-up things seem a good deal more important than the real ones. Suppose this black pit of a kingdom of yours is the only world. Well, it strikes me as a pretty poor one. […] I’m on Aslan’s side even if there isn’t any Aslan to lead it. I’m going to live as like a Narnian as I can even if there isn’t any Narnia.

— Puddleglum, from The Silver Chair

The purpose of Design Opus is to celebrate the prophetic voices of conscious business and civil society, and create simple tools that help them kindle and communicate vision. I am passionate about creating bonds of mutual trust and serving my community, and I believe that businesses and civil society have significant creative roles to play in fostering human wholeness.

Servant-led businesses can have a sweeping positive impact on society and culture, lifting people out of poverty and creating a space for peace and sustainable prosperity through adventurous creative achievement. My vision is to build a heritage of wholeness, trust, and loving service by connecting a new generation of conscious businesses and social entrepreneurs to their communities through steady creative work.
