While caring for his father living with Alzheimer’s for the past seven years, NBC News and MSNBC anchor Richard Lui has come to realize there’s a key element missing in our world: serving others. Richard shares how giving ourselves the grace to practice selflessness imperfectly allows us to hone our skills and pave the road for even greater acts of service down the road.

 

Quotes

“We don't often talk about our faith in the journalism space. But I certainly will approach my job, and I think, What would Jesus do? And I think that drives me a lot in the decision making that I do, in the stories I select, the words that I use, the way I talk.” —Richard Lui

“The acceptance of some imperfect decisions that are still selfless—that is, thinking of another person—that's a small way of getting that muscle tone, just like when we go to the gym and we do an exercise everyday.” —Richard Lui

“I never thought that our family and myself have found our faith renewed, re-strengthened, redefined. And that what it means to say the word “God” and what God means to us has also been renewed and redefined.” —Richard Lui, on walking with his father through Alzheimer’s
