Robert Wetherington – Priest and Sermonizer

644 399 Austin Barrow

This one is a bit out of the norm for my typical interviewee. However, I think you will enjoy the conversation. This is not intended to be an evangelical proselytizing, but the subject matter is Christian in its origins. I’ve known Robert for a little more than a year now and have grown more and more enamored with his ability to inspire his congregation every week. After having lunch one afternoon with my wife, it occurred to me that the amount of creative energy required to deliver with that much punch weekly must be researched. Plus he gave me the best headshot ever for the podcast.

4032 3024 Austin Barrow

For instance, I love it when people ask me what I do now. “I’m writing.” There is typically a second or two pause before, “Oh, good for you.”

If I’m sincere, I’m just trying to figure it out. I write daily. Some of it appears in the forum you are currently consuming, but most of it goes unseen. Many of my words get eaten up in the editing process, which I have learned most recently is the primary job of a writer. That, and always knowing the difference between “your” and “you’re.”

Creatively – Episode 006

1078 1080 Austin Barrow

This weeks guest on the podcast is Madison Murphy. Many people know Madison in his executive capacity as a current board member and former CFO and former Chairman of the Murphy Oil Corporation and his current Chairmanship of the Fortune 500 company Murphy USA. In addition to the impressive resume in the board room, and perhaps a product of his ability to put his passion to work in all the right places, he is a hell of a musician. Madison grew up in S. Arkansas playing the guitar at family gatherings and after a little coaxing by his mother, during church services. We discuss his history with music and the life lessons he has been able to glean from having a creative outlet in his life, despite the stresses that high profile business has brought to his doorstep.
