Two of this week's films come from the TED archive, the most recent, Amanda Palmer's "The Art of Asking" is the most recent; she spoke at this year's TED just this last Wednesday. Each video offers a new way of viewing giving, gratitude, and vulnerability; each speaker presenting ideas of how to be in Western society while simultaneously challenging some of our society's deeply held precepts. It's certainly excellent food for thought for Christians as we continue to wrestle with how to be in but not of this world.
