Stuff I’ve Been Reading

Hello, dear friends! I hope that you are having a lovely weekend. Things are pretty awesome here. I spent last night with Dan Brennan, author of Sacred Unions, Sacred Passions, and his friend Jennifer Ould. It was a fantastic time, even if I did take my Chicago friends out for pizza…in West Virginia. I’m grateful for so many of the friends that I’ve made through blogging and I can’t wait to met some of you later this week at Wild Goose!

Now, on to this week’s favorites!

  • This morning, my dear friend Preston is being confirmed into the Anglican church. I love his thoughts about this event.
  • I appreciated this post by Zack Hunt about false teachers. I really appreciate his take on this tricky conversation about people in the Christian faith who have vastly different ideas.
  • This post about consecrated sexual attraction by Ryan Thomas Neace was brilliant. My visual slam on Friday afternoon is about this topic, and I wish I’d read this before I finished my presentation.
  • Addie Zierman’s new book is available for pre-order. She wrote about why she used adult language in her book in this beautiful post.
  • Best tampon service commercial ever.
  • I never thought that bats could be cute, but I was wrong. This is the cutest thing you’ll likely see this week.
  • I started reading Faitheist by Chris Stedman simply as research for the book, but let me tell you, this is an amazing book and I have just been eating it up. Definitely one of the most powerful memoirs I’ve read in a while.

What have you read/written/watched/listened to this week that moved you? Link it up in the comments!

    I loved the piece by Zach Hunt.

    The rhetoric that denounces disagreement as false teaching is as tiresome as the rhetoric that we are hated by the world (I.e. those who disagree with us) because we speak the truth.

    Maybe, sometimes, we pretend to know for certain what we see squinting into that dim mirror. Maybe that moral certainty causes us to act like jerks. Maybe that’s why the world is annoyed with us.
