Worldchanging is a Movement | David Lamotte | Everyday Spirituality
In this episode of Everyday Spirituality, we talk with singer, songwriter, author and peacemaker, David Lamotte. During this part of our conversation we talk about how the work of Worldchanging is done by movements of people, not individual heroes.
Given the current state of the world, we are seeing this lived out first hand through the work of Black Lives Matter organizers across the country who are leading a movement of people inspired to act by the death of George Floyd.
“There is a toxic narrative in our culture when it comes to changing the world—It takes someone heroic, to do something dramatic, in a moment of crisis. The advantage in that narrative for those of us to want to see change, is that If heroes fix things, and I’m not a hero, therefore it’s not my job; my job is to clap.” David Lamotte
“It’s important for us to remember that what makes the change is the small, undramatic, consistent effort over time. And there is good news there, which is that YOU are not powerless. We can show up and do the work.” David Lamotte
