CAUSE: The Question of Making a Difference


We live in an Age of Passion.  From the pet causes of celebrities, the peppering of messages on social media, to the real injustices that are stirring hearts and minds... we have never lived in an age where we had more access to more information on how to make the world a better place.  But why doesn't it work? Or work better?

If you've ever wondered how to swim through the sea of all the potential causes to get behind and also how to engage differently to really make a difference, this week's WordCAST is for you. 

The Podcast this week includes:

  • A reflection on our Age of Passion and why we're all so stinking fired up
  • A remarkable glance through ancient wisdom that completely changes our view of making a difference.
  • And a look at the 5 Stages of Difference Making, how to recognize them and how to move them when you find your heart broken for what breaks the world.

Nick Richtsmeier

Nearly 20 years ago Nick set out into adulthood with the clear personal mission to discover and create ways for people to find their own hearts and the heart of God and where between the two may meet.  His road has taken him through professional ministry, white collar industry, career mentoring, life-coaching, blogging and everything in between.  Along the way, Nick's passion for the clarion necessity of a better way to live, to engage, to embrace the Divine and to look ourselves in the mirror has only been honed and sharpened.

A passionate communicator, deep thinker and lifelong contrarian, Nick finds his deepest joys in his marriage to Wendy and fathering his three sons, Evan, Grant and Cole.  After a lifetime of looking for meaning, Nick has come to a fundamental conclusion which he states succinctly: "I searched for a story worth living and then I realized that the story was made worthy by living it. I am a husband, a father, a businessman, and searcher."
