Table

Okay, you’ve got 8 spots at your dinner table for an upcoming gathering at your house. Invitees have to be alive. And has to be people you’ve never met. Who’s getting the invites?

Here’s my eight:

1. Nelson Mandela

2. Jim Collins

3. Jack Dorsey

4. Paul Farmer

5. Donald Miller

6. Seth Godin

7. Sheryl Sandberg

8. Bono

Who’s at your dinner table?

      Tom,
      Your list seems doable, for the most part. :-)

      • Tom Vanderwell

        That first one might be a problem, but I’m thinking we could solve a lot of problems with that group……

  • Joana

    Sarah Bessey, Jen Hatmaker, Jennie Allen, Christy Nockels, Katie Davis, Chris Rice, Tim Hawkins, and Kay Robertson. :p
