On My Reading Desk This Week (03/03/13 – 03/09/13)
This week was really busy and tiring. So I didn’t get much reading in as I would’ve liked. But what I DID get to read was wonderful. Here’s a list of some of the great things I came across on my reading desk.
What’s So Great About “The Common Good” — Andy Crouch, This is Our City
Why should Christians embrace this phrase?? Great read on recovering the language of the “common good” in Christianity.
Nerf Wars and Women in the Church — Wayne Beason
Stellar. Just stellar. Liberating and redemptive.
‘The Bible’ Series: An Invitation to ‘Change the World’ — Jim Wallis, The Huffington post
“That’s what we are going to do: change the world. Not just to save a few people from hell and get them to heaven..” Amen. This is what our faith is about! I find too often that believers miss this altogether in their worldview. I should start cataloging all the articles and posts I read that relate to developing this understanding.
March 3 Homily — Leah Wise: a journal
This. Great writing. “God came first with passion, with fury and movement and an impatient drive to protect his people. And he let one of us in. He gave us the power to do something and the motivation to do it. But, just like the disciples and Jesus’ listening crowds, we got lost again in our own concerns. And we saw suffering and only felt lucky not to be suffering, too. And we repeat the cycle daily.”
peace:militarization — Gukira
Great thoughts on the militarization of peace and the Kenyan Elections.
