On Today’s Sunday Shout Outs, I’m sharing four posts that are really good and worth reading. I hope you will…
This post, I Raise My Hands: A Prayerful Response To Ferguson, by Osheta Moore. Here’s my favorite line: “Today, I raise my hands because the truth is black lives matter and black kids don’t have to be college-bound for their deaths to be tragic. I raise my hands for the truth that Jesus identified with the poor, broken, marginalized, and ignored.”
This post, Church, Here’s Why People Are Leaving You, by John Pavlovitz. Here’s my favorite line: “From what we know about Jesus, we think he looks like love. The unfortunate thing is, you don’t look much like him.”
This post, The Only Way I Know How To Save The World, by Richard Beck. Here’s my favorite line: “During services Jana and I sat with Moses. Moses is Black. And I drove Henry home after church. We listened to Tejano music. Henry is Hispanic. I am White. This is the body of Christ. Each of us in that church, despite our race and everything else that divides us, from gender to education to socioeconomic status, showing up to eat together, worship together and pray together.”
This post, Why Swedes Take At Least 5 Weeks Of Vacation, by Johan Modig. Here’s my favorite line: “Even with this corporate-centric outlook (which is a sad outlook to have on life), however, it turns out skimping on vacation is actually bad for productivity. Putting in fewer hours tends to increase your output and efficiency during those hours, since your brain is able to stay focused and undistracted the entire time.”
