Welcome to Season 1, Episode 2 of the Advancement Creative podcast. I ask pastor Chris Symes to read one of his short stories entitled Beans. Chris and I discuss how we became friends during art school at the University of Oklahoma, how we get inspiration for writing, and my upcoming book David & Goliath. Chris Symes is pastor of Cornerstone Methodist Church in Oklahoma City. You can find Chris's blog here.

ABOUT ADVANCEMENT CREATIVE
For a few years now, a group of writers and artists, working in a wide range of genres and styles, have been meeting monthly at my office. Generally, we break bread, drink coffee and tea, and discuss one another's creative endeavors. Advancement Creative is a safe place to get feedback and gain others' insights about one's work-in-progress. The Inklings-inspired collective is bound together by a shared faith in Jesus Christ; a pursuit of individual and communal growth in creativity, productivity, and personal output; and, not least of these, lasting friendship among members.
