For me, being able to engage with the details when necessary, when there’s a challenge, when there’s a particularly important pivot, yes, you have to do that. But in general, a leader needs to trust their commanders, needs to trust the team they’ve assembled, to actually execute in the right way.

When people say, you know, ‘Good teacher,’ ‘Prophet,’ ‘Really nice guy‘… this is not how Jesus thought of Himself. So you’re left with a challenge in that, which is either Jesus was who he said he was or a complete and utter nut case. You have to make a choice on that.

It’s hard to shape glass. It took me years of practice, and as a result, I’ve never gotten bored with it. It’s difficult. Every time I come into the studio, I’ve got some sort of new challenge. And something that I would like to learn how to do better, and the material never disappoints me.
