If you missed the above events you can see another presentation of Let Love Lead online.Who doesn’t yearn for work that taps into one’s deepest talents and interests? Finding it is the focus of two upcoming talks. Chet Manchester, a longtime creative director who now works as a Christian Science practitioner, says that his quest for the right career happened over a decade.
“My first step was a familiar one: finding out what I loved to do” Manchester says. For him, this included dropping out of Dartmouth College his freshman year and enrolling in art school. Then, after some successes and failures in his twenties, including a divorce, a failed film venture and a health crisis, he realized, “I needed something more. I began to ask not just ‘What do I love to do?’ but ‘What is Love itself impelling me to do for the world with my talents?’
Manchester says his life, health and career took off as he responded to this question. He has lived and worked in Kenya, France and on both US coasts and has been a featured speaker at interfaith events. His talk is called “Let Love Lead: find your path in life and work” and will include a perspective on noted author, Mary Baker Eddy and her landmark text, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures.
