Stuff I’ve Been Reading

Stuff I've Been Reading graphic

Hello, friends! The summer is rolling quickly along and tomorrow I head out on vacation with the family. As such, I’ll be taking the week off from blogging. But I will be sending out a newsletter this week at some point, so if you’d like to read something, you can sign up here.

And now, on to my favorites of the week!

  • One of the first things that I read this week was this piece by Leigh Kramer. It’s brutally and beautifully honest. I can’t wait to give her a big hug next weekend.
  • My kids are huge fans of Minecraft. Like, they all of matching t-shirts declaring their love of the game. And I’ll be honest, I just don’t get it. So I adored (!!!!) this post by Heather King in which she admits that she doesn’t get it either.
  • My friend Ed Cyzewski wrote a fantastic post about why he hates the word inerrancy. So much good stuff here.
  • Have you ever questioned if your art is really “worth it”? This post  by Karin Gillespie was written specifically for writers, but I think it applies to any art form.
  • Shawn Smucker still writes over at A Deeper Church. His post there this week encouraging each of us to see the need around us and to respond is one worth reading.
  • This post by Emily Maynard feels like she’s inside my brain. It’s super crazy to see failure as “safe,” but I get this all the way.
  • One of my favorite new bands is Johnnyswim. They have a new EP that released this week. You should definitely go right now and buy it. Because it is SO GOOD.

    I’ve been reading “Love is an Orientation” by Andrew Marin (really good).

      I keep thinking I’ll get through my “to read” list, and then I stop by here and it grows! Actually, that’s not a bad problem to have.

      Ed, your thoughts about inerrancy helped shore up my hope that a pluralistic society is possible. :)
