Monday Start: Resources for the Week

start (1)Work

See Jeri Dansky’s “Book Review: The Organized Mind.”  You can find the book here. I am always looking for articles/posts/books that help me reflect on how I work.  See also Greg Mckeown’s fine book Essentialism.  I read this book in August and found it to be incredibly helpful.

Sex

Don’t miss Kenny Luck’s article in Charisma Magazine “The Deadly Deception of Sexual Atheism in the Church.”

Reading

See Maria Popva’s piece “What Books Do for the Human Soul: The Four Psychological Functions of Great Literature.”  Many, many people will say they don’t like to read.  However, for many people, reading good books can be a real catalyst to person growth and change.

O’Conner

I saw this news about one of my favorite writers, Flannery O’Conner.  “Emory Receives Archive of Work by O’Conner.”  See also this piece from Emory University.

Audio Books

Have you considered listening to audio books?  I typically purchase these from Audible.com (an Amazon company).  Before this year, I did not listen to audio books. However, when I moved from Waco, Tx. to Memphis, Tn. to begin working with Harding School of Theology, I knew I needed to try something different if I was going to keep up with my reading.  I will often listen to a book on the way to or from work. Often, I will listen to a book while working out at the gym.  I still read books (both paper and Kindle).  However, this gives me one more option.  You might consider this.
