This is my 4th installment of “What I’m Feasting On”–a post where I share some of the new music, books, blogs, and television I’ve been engaging with lately. As a dad of two toddlers, these posts are extremely infrequent. Why? There’s only so much time for free time hobbies that involve reading, listening, and watching.
- A couple books I’ve read recently that I found especially excellent: Essentialism by Greg McKeown and You Are What You Love by James KA Smith. Though they are 110% different, I thought they paired well together.
- A totally different kind of book, but especially needed in our fear-driven society, The Patient Ferment of the Early Church was instrumental as I put together my message on the parable of the mustard seed.
- This post from Andrea Burke needs to be read many times over by many people. We have completely misunderstood what godly significance is. “When I tried to become significant, my world became about me and my hungry ego.”
- “14 Ways Donald Trump Embodies Every Bad Stereotype Of Millennials.” Yes.
- Sandra McCracken releases her album this week, but you can listen to a pre-release here. So good.
- In case you haven’t already heard, Malcolm Gladwell’s new podcast Revisionist History is excellent. He injects too much opinion into the episodes but as a guy who is smarter than me, I can take it. His Generous Orthodoxy episode is a must listen even though I totally disagree with his take.
- I’ve been really enjoying the Am I Called? podcast as well. Wise Christian leaders sharing on subjects related to Christian ministry calling.
- Come on, you really think I have time to watch movies?
