The Most Important Thing I'll Say Today

I have the opportunity to interact with people all throughout the day. That probably doesn't make me all that unique. I bet you have the same opportunities as me. Because I live in a very virtual world, most of my meetings are by phone, Skype or WebEx.

One of the big questions is, "how will I use today's God-given opportunities?"

I have been fascinated by the way story works in our…

Clyde's Reading List

Here is the list of books I have read in the last few years (not to be confused with my film list). My reading tends to happen in fits and starts. My books are my mentors. They find themselves congregating all over the house. Unfortunately only one out of three benefit from the air-conditioning inside the house. The other two thirds sweat it out in the garage. 

I like to hold the physical…

The Power of Remembering

Last night, as we lay in bed debriefing of the day, Shirin breathed with fatigue, "the last year has been a blur. I feel like I've lost a whole year. The only fun times I remember are our trip to Monterey and the Story Seminar."…

5 Reasons to Be a Museum of the Bible Ambassador

Last night Shirin and I were guests of Steve and Jackie Green in Santa Clarita, California. Along with 100 others, we were there to learn about the launch of the Museum of the Bible in Washington D.C. in 2017. Last night, I got the backstory of the museum. More importantly, I was completely captured by the vision. I invite you to get involved in this historic opportunity with Shirin and me.…

My Hall of Faith

Nancy and Steve were married for 45 years. Steve was the Alaska bush pilot, HP computer reseller and the inventor of the "chicken coop on wheels." Nancy was the willing follower, schoolteacher and mother of their eight children. Steve was one of the first guys in the world to envision how mobile phones could be used to reach people with little access to the…

The 2013 Technology That Changed My Life

Sometimes it is the little technologies that make a big difference. My great discovery from 2013 is voice-to-text technology.



I am a reasonable two-handed typist (I'm sure I'm over 25 words a minute), but find I make frequent mistakes and end up being quite inefficient. I had tried to use the…

Why I Don't Use the Word "Christian"

In America, we live in a time when our stock as "Christians" is trading at an all-time low.  We just don't have a generally positive image in the eyes of most non-believers.  Gabe Lyons wrote an entire book about this.  Here are some of the reasons I don't use the word…

The 7 Things You Need to Succeed in Media

Celebrity Sightings

I am from Maryland on the East Coast of the United States.



I moved reluctantly to California (true) in 2000.  When we could no longer deny God's calling, we moved here to serve here with The Jesus Film Project in what turned out to be an extraordinary run.



Within six months of moving here, I was a convert.  Who needs seasons?  I love the 380 days of sunshine a year, access to the beach and the mountains (ok, we're not mountain people) and the moderate climate. …

Do You Like 50% of Your Job?

I love 60% of what I do every day. The other 40% I tolerate out of necessity.  



I love strategy, developing new initiatives, expanding the scope of the Visual Story Network, meeting new people, working with teams, etc.



Every role has downsides. I have to manage a lot of detail.  I manage my own schedule, book my own flights, reconcile the books at the end of each month and write and edit most of the communications.…

A Story and a Prayer for the Next Generation

Six of us sat in the Asian-accented hotel room this past Saturday night from 9 PM till midnight. We had just participated in six days of strategic gatherings to partner, learn and develop new ways to share Christ to the ends of the earth.



Our hosts, Carol and Calvin Conkey, had created a warm setting for a quiet celebration over what God had done in the prior week.  Soft lighting, candles, drinks, popcorn and sugar cookies waited.  We were ready…

Son of God Movie

Two thumbs up from me!  

Apparently several million others who purchased $26.5 million worth of tickets on opening weekend thought the same.



A good portion of the movie was from the television series that aired last year. I don't know how much of this material was new, but it seemed like there was fresh content.…
