Say Yes:
A Liturgy of Not Giving Up on Yourself

Say Yes: A Liturgy of Not Giving Up on Yourself

Written and performed by Scott Erickson – Part of our Guest Artist Series

Watch the Trailer

“Juxtaposing story-teaching, participation, humor, and image curation, artist Scott Erickson walks us through the very personal and universal conversation about the death of a dream and the overwhelming voice of Giving Up in our lives.”

Say Yes: A Liturgy of Not Giving Up on Yourself is a multi-sensory experience that reveals this moment not as an ending but as a sacred doorway into a much deeper invitation to our hopes, vocation, and our existence itself.”

Scott Erickson is a touring painter, performance speaker, and creative curate who mixes autobiography, mythology, and aesthetics to create art and moments that speak to our deepest experiences.

Using his passion and commitment to craft, Scott has been a working artist for over a decade, and has had his work appear on CNN, National Geographic, and various magazines, newspaper outlets, and book covers.

As a speaker, Scott brings his training as an educator and his experience as a visual communicator to all of his presentations. His goal is to bring something for his “A.D.D. brothers and sisters out there”… making sure every speech is thoughtful, entertaining, wondrous, and filled with visual elements and live creating.

He is the writer and performer of two one man shows. Wrestling with his own professional burnout and clinical depression, “We Are Not Troubled Guests” is a performance story-telling piece in which he navigates the surprising gift of an existential crisis. His current show, “SAY YES: A Liturgy of Not Giving Up On Yourself”, juxtaposes story-teaching, participation, humor, and image curation as Scott walks us through the very personal and universal conversation about the death of a dream and the overwhelming voice of Giving Up in our lives.

He is the co-author of Prayer: Forty Days of Practice and May It Be So, a Spiritual Director to brave women and men, and a professional dishwasher for his food blogging wife.

Scott lives in Vancouver, WA and is most loved by his wife Holly and his children Anders, Elsa, and Jones.
