We're really excited about our 2021 Annual Report! Having launched our company in 2020, our sophomore year really helped us "incarnate" our values in cool, new ways. It can be hard to remember where all your time went at the end of a year. As we looked over the spreadsheets where we track activities, the theme of connection and an emphasis on people-over-projects emerged as the narrative for the year.
We hope you will read through it and celebrate with us. It will become clear that Blueprint 1543 is not defined by one team of people in one organization, but by a porous network of leaders, scholars, and activities mutually resourcing one another towards common goals.
For Blueprint 1543, the how? of our work is as important as the what?. Yes, we want to integrate the sciences and the Christian faith to address the big questions, but we want to do that work in a way that’s consistent with our goals and commitments. One of those animating beliefs is that people – individual lives – are of immense value.Justin L. Barrett, Letter from the President, excerpt from 2021 Annual Report
