Description

Blaine's honesty about his own pain and loss was an incredible canvas for a narrative that reaches far beyond his own experiences and into that place of radical transformation.

He is now the creative director at Willow Creek Community Church and lives with his wife, Margaret, and their daughter, Ruby just outside of Chicago. Overall, I am extremely impressed with Hogan's honesty, self-awareness, and ability to communicate difficult stories and profound truths about grace in such well-written prose. It turns out Blaine Hogan's story though not(really) similar to mine but enough to show me how I could apply what is in his story, and his trauma and see what God is attempting to do in mine. And as I went back into those stories, both in my work in Seattle and in the book, I realized that, there was such goodness. And again, not to say there wasn’t goodness in you before she spoke, but she spoke and something came to be there is that creative act in speech that when she spoke existence came to be.

I was fortunate to read Blaine’s book prior to publishing and couldn’t have been more excited to see that it’s finally here. As the submissions rolled in, I was amazed and delighted at the strange and lovely people we were seeing. Blaine: Oh, I mean, I kind of go back to the earlier part of our conversation when we were discussing Hagar.

It is about him boldly taking a step out of the cave of addiction, depression, self-pity, and encountering health issues among his loved ones. Because the goal for me was just to try to tell the truth, and knowing that if we were going to invite people, you know, at the end of this time, in a church service to give their life to Christ and, be changed and renewed and have some form of healing, I felt like it was a disservice, to do that without inviting them first into a taste of what, it might actually look like. I largely avoid self-help books because not enough of the author's story is told for me to care, and to see through their story how I can adapt my own to make changes. But I know that, as, as hard as it is to try and hawk a book with their deepest and darkest secrets, I do know, that someone will read this and not feel alone.And in that, you know, as the one time creative director at Willow Creek Church and Chicago, you’ve been in big settings, and you know, both in terms of your acting career, in terms of your writing, I mean, to say the least, you’re, you’re one of the most creative people I have known on the earth. And how do we come not just back together, but how do we come back together forward in a way in which we are able to stand on the neck of evil and say, our love can grow even stronger in the midst of this? After years stuck in a painful cycle fueled by past abuse and ongoing addiction, actor, artist, and director Blaine Hogan finally hit rock bottom. There was a lot of interesting insights and hard won wisdom, particularly for people with abuse or addiction in their past and/or for creatives who view life as a constant act of making and remaking.

Hiding behind his success and what he perceived as comfort in his addiction he recognižes it no longer works for him.

In this exposed story of his young life, Blaine shares the stories that shaped him guided by God's greater story for living in a complicated world. Blaine: But, as hard as that story is, there are 2 truths, that you pulled out and became sort of, if the cave had become the first formative story of, Act one. and so I feel like that’s just important to say as part of this conversation, but I do hope that people read it and they see themselves, and I always misquote Carl [ Rogers] when I say this, but I did look it up for this interview, is that he, he said that the, the most personal is the most universal. Through powerful personal revelations, he invites you to take up the practices of radical imagination and real creativity so you can tell a better story with your life.

His latest book, Exit the Cave: Embracing a Life of Courage, Creativity, and Radical Imagination , is available wherever books are sold.He talked about finding clarity and freedom within the specifics of our story—the painful parts, the places I had avoided eye-contact with for most of my life.
