Every Friday I post a short list of the things I’m reading, listening to, loving and wrestling with:
Here’s what I’m reading right now:

Predictable Success: Getting Your Organization on the Growth Track – and Keeping It There by Les McKeown. I’m testing out Audible for absorbing an additional book every month.
Quote I’m wrestling with:
“The main reason why Christian believers today (from various communities) have not had the influence in the culture to which they have aspired is not that they don’t believe enough, or try hard enough, or care enough, or think Christianly enough, or have the right worldview, but rather because they have been absent from the arenas in which the greatest influence in the culture is exerted.” James Davison Hunter, To Change the World: The Irony, Tragedy, & Possibility of Christianity in the Late Modern World.
App I’m using:
I’m committed this year to increasing my effectiveness. Nozbe is a leading productivity app. First heard about it from Michael Hyatt. It’s already making a big difference.
