#Food4Thought – Stuff That Got Me Thinking This Week…

One of my goals is to be a lifelong learner and I’m always trying to read/watch/listen to different resources that will cause me to grow.

Here is some stuff that has really gotten me thinking this week:

  1. Faith Tech put out their monthly newsletter – I can’t link it but just check out their site and get on their mailing list. This is a cutting-edge ministry that is really a great thought leader in the area of faith and technology.
  2. Why You Should Have a Not to Do List by Brian Jones – really good article that gets you thinking on what you should not be doing. Please Note: this is written by a Pastor to Pastor’s but I think it can be helpful even if you are not a pastor in your personal context.
  3. How to Build Your Vision from the Ground Up – I have not gotten a chance to go through this conversation between Steven Furtick and T.D. Jakes but I have heard so much good stuff I already know it’s going to be good (and worth passing on).
  4. Passion Translation – I got the New Testament + Psalms/Proverbs Passion Translation for Christmas and I’m reading through the New Testament this month and I’m loving it! I highly recommend this translation of the scriptures. Here is an example:

Rom 8:35, 38-39 – Who could ever separate us from the endless love of God’s Anointed One? Absolutely no one! For nothing in the universe has the power to diminish his love toward us. Troubles, pressures, and problems are unable to come between us and heaven’s love. What about persecutions, deprivations, dangers, and death threats? No, for they are all impotent to hinder omnipotent love,… So now I live with the confidence that there is nothing in the universe with the power to separate us from God’s love. I’m convinced that his love will triumph over death, life’s troubles, ai fallen angels, or dark rulers in the heavens. There is nothing in our present or future circumstances that can weaken his love. 39 There is no power above us or beneath us—no power that could ever be found in the universe that can distance us from God’s passionate love, which is lavished upon us through our Lord Jesus, the Anointed One!
