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:
7 Signs What’s Driving You Is Beginning To Destroy You by Carey Nieuwhof. I needed this. You might too.
Your Congregation May Experience “Request Fatigue.” by Dan Reiland. Very thought-provoking.

What the Christian Critics Missed in Disney’s Beauty and the Beast by Phil Cooke. Very good insights.

Here’s what I’m listening to:

Quotes I’m wrestling with:
“If you will empower the right people, There’s no limit to what you can do. If you don’t empower people, you are the limiting factor.” Craig Groeschel
“The strength of your organization is not a reflection of what you control. The strength of your organization is a reflection of who you empower.” Craig Groeschel
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.
My own post I hope you’re reading:
How to Launch a Short-Term On-Campus Strategy (that leads to off-campus groups). This innovation has added a third important strategy to connect unconnected people.
