Monday Start: Resources for the Week

Quick-StartReading list

Bill Gates has shared his summer reading list.  Gates is a lifelong learner and reads widely.  You may find this interesting.  Also note his website thegatesnotes.com.

Inspiring

Don’t miss this wonderful story about former President George H. W. Bush who, along with his security detail, shaved his head in honor of a little boy with cancer.  In this videoJenna Bush Hager, his granddaughter, interviews him regarding this gesture.  Bush experienced the death of a daughter at age three to leukemia many years ago.

Resources

Be sure to check out the online version of Flipboard, the wonderful resource that has been available via iPhone and iPad.  This is one of my favorite tools.

Productivity

Ministry

Thom Rainer did a survey that revealed some interesting expectations, with implications for anyone serving in a ministry role in a congregation.  See “How Many Hours Must a Pastor Work?”

    Jim:

    Sorry – but none of the “links” do anything. Every underlined section of text that I would expect to be a Web link does nothing when clicked on.

    I really wanted to read some of the links but could not get there from your blog page.

    Thanks,

    Dave

    Dave, thanks for letting me know about the problem with the links. Not sure what happened.

    “Monday Start: Resources for the Week – A Place for the God-Hungry” was indeed quite enjoyable and useful!

    Within the present day world honestly, that is really difficult to achieve.
    Many thanks, Vivien
