The Art of Disruption


An excerpt from Rob Bell’s Drops Like Stars

There’s a phrase we use when we’re describing something we consider new and unexpected.

We say it’s “out of the box.”

The problem with the phrase is that when something or someone is judged to be in or out of “the box”, it reveals that “the box” is still our primary point of reference.
We’re still operating within the prescribed boundaries and assumptions of how things are supposed to be.

“Out of the box” is sometimes merely another way of being “in the box”.

And then there are those (…) who come from a totally different place.

They ask another kind of question:

“There’s a box?”
