What is Standing on Giants all about?

Kyle Reed // @kylereed

I realized recently that I have not done the greatest job of sharing with you all what Standing on Giants is all about. Well let me take the time to clear that all up with you now.

Standing on Giants is inspired by this quote from Sir Isaac Newton (found here)

if I have seen a little further it is by standing on the shoulders of Giants.

I love the idea and picture that paints. Being able to see beyond and further by standing on the giants that have come before us.

What does Standing on Giants mean to you?

It might be worth the read. It cause a big discussion about cussing in the church and relevance.

    At first glance it reminds me of David and Goliath…and just conquering our giants. Though, when you read the “standing on giants” with the quote then it takes on a different meaning. I think in some ways it reminds me of when Joshua and the Israelites were about to take the promised land. The whole idea that you see what you are about to possess before you step out to take it. That those who have gone before us act as a springboard to propel us to see even farther than they have seen. To dream bigger and thus in turn live and act bigger. Yet, we must still take that step to act and not just look at the promised land while camping out in the wilderness.
    But, yes, I like it :)

      love that story of Joshua. Interesting thing, when I was launching the new look that week I was reading the story of Joshua and when he took over for Moses :)

    It kind of means exactly what that quote describes, and how you described it. Is it lame not to have a deeper interpretation? :)
