If you feel overwhelmed

This is a great article, by Peter Bregman, that appeared in The Harvard Business Review: “Two Lists You Should Look at Every Morning.”

For an interesting read

You might consider looking at The Browser: Writing Worth Reading.  This is an interesting website that features “Today on FiveBooks Interviews” in which various people suggest the best reading on any subject.

On writing

You might enjoy these two interviews with Ian Morgan Cron on the life of a writer.  See part 1 here and part 2 here.  Be sure to see the notes on each page.  Cron is the author of Jesus, My Father, The CIA, and Me, which is an excellent book that explores in particular the relationship between a boy and his father.

Thinking about ministry

John Fry has written two good posts in which he offers some very insightful comments regarding pastoral ministry.  See “Are ‘Pastors’ The Problem?” and “Is ‘Pastor’ a Volatile Word?

Critical situations in the world

While I was away, I read Jeffrey Gettleman’s startling piece in The New York Times on the thousands of children who are fleeing Sudan.  Oh my goodness.

I also read this sobering piece about a 13-year-old Afghan girl who was forced to marry and then was tortured.  Fortunately, some sought justice.
