Weekly Recap — Reads and Listens (06/13/2020)
Each Saturday, I want to provide you a list of resources for you to engage yourself that influenced me. You can access the articles, podcasts, and other links in the list below.
- Why is common sense uncommon? An Interview with Gerald Hector — We had the great opportunity to interview Gerald Hector, Executive VP and Chief Business Officer of Morehouse College on the Why God Why Podcast. He recently wrote the book, It’s Easy Son Quit Making Things Difficult.
- I Have Only One Hope for Racial Justice: A God Who Conquered Death by Esau McCaulley — I love this quote, “Our limited imaginations do not form the boundaries of what God can do.”
- “Neither White Nor Black”?: Paul’s Case Against Being Colorblind by Nijay Gupta — Often, Galatians 3:28 is misunderstood. Nijay Gupta helps us see how the gospel calls us to set aside our biases and hostilities to serve each other as allies.
- Ten Ways to Lead Your Student Through Racial Tension by Peter Reeves & Reggie Hill — Peter and Reggie offer ten practical insights on having conversations with students on racism. I would highly encourage this article for parents, pastors, and small group leaders.
- The Gospel Centered Enneagram with Brian Lee on the Blackbar Podcast — If you’re a church leader, I highly encourage you to subscribe to the Blackbar podcast. This week, they interviewed Brian Lee, a friend from the University of Valley Forge, who became an Enneagram coach. He provides one of the clearest descriptions on how this tool helps you understand the gospel. See his site at https://www.gospelcenteredenneagram.com/.
