Gracefully at the Chautauqua Institution

This week, the team at Gracefully is in gorgeous Chautauqua, NY, for a weeklong exploration of grace hosted by the Chautauqua Institution. Throughout the week, we are talking to new people about grace and technology, and recording more content for our forthcoming podcast (we promise, it’s coming!).

Chautauqua Institution President Michael Hill set the tone for the week with a thoughtful column in the Chautauquan Daily. Here’s a short excerpt:

“Be it emotional, physical or spiritual, grace takes many forms. It exists in the way we treat one another, the way in which we move through the world and the way in which we use our gifts, our grace, to lift up others. Grace, as defined by religious terms, is the means by which we receive an unearned gift, one we’re not worthy of. Beyond religion, what does grace look like in the secular world? When is grace difficult? In talking across differences? In compromise? In the face of adversity? We’ll look at the moments in which grace is most needed. How can we go out into the world, actively moving with more grace throughout our own lives?”

Through Gracefully, we are working to address these questions and the role that technology can play in either helping or hindering the discovery of answers.

We’re grateful to Michael and the Chautauqua community for inviting us to be part of this magical week.
