What are you reading?

Here’s a quick look at two books I’m currently reading and enjoying. Help me develop my “next list” by sharing what you’re also reading. If you’re not my “friend” on Goodreads, let’s link up.

Nuff Said: Tulsi Gabbard’s takedown of HRC, the ideal length of every social media post, the danger of expectations, the myth of dying Christianity, and Bad Lip Reading by Joe Biden

“Nuff Said” is a collection of articles that caught my eye on the interwebs. This entry includes politics, faith, social media and a life hack about unmet expectations. I’ve tossed in a video of bad lip reading by Joe Biden for free.

Pastor Church Staff Appreciation Month

A few radical (and thoughtful) ideas from a pastor about encouraging your entire church staff throughout the year.

MacAddict magazine

When you still own six years of back issue MacAddict magazines, you can claim title to King Apple Boy. They’re going on the auction block, but read the history of this wonderfully snarky magazine here.

Reflections on Senegal

A few thoughts on my trip to Senegal, including a Mercy Ships tour and a walk with lions.

But Senegal

I never knew I’d be nudged to Senegal. Here’s the story.

10 years of ministry (and lots of coffee)

Here are seven things I’ve learned/re-learned after 10 years in ministry at Northstar Church and ten things I’m thankful for.

Review: “Openness Unhindered” by Rosario Butterfield

Rosario Butterfield’s second book is a beautifully-written and vulnerable reflection on life as a Christian heterosexual after years of living as a non-Christian lesbian. Her scriptural faithfulness and commitment to re-examining sexuality in general in the middle of a cultural firestorm has gotten this book banned from Amazon.

Why do Christian women struggle with friendships?

My observation is that women struggle with genuine, vulnerable friendships – especially Christian women. Though nervous about tackling such a subject as a man, I hope that these thoughts will be a catalyst toward growth and even correction of my observation if it’s found to be faulty.
