Pastor's Pick for April 17, 2018

April 17, 2018

 

Every Tuesday, I will do my best to share with you books I like, articles that are interesting and other resources I think will help you on your Christian journey. 

 

How to Rebuild Trust

 

At a secular Ted Talk, Frances Frei discusses trust. While this talk deals with corporate trust, I believe she makes key points that ca n apply to us personally.

Politics and Our Christianity

 

There are two great articles on Christianity and politics by 9Marks. This ministry is based out of Washington D.C., and both articles give insight to our responsibility to both God and country.

What the Church Can Bring to the #MeToo Movement

 

Oftentimes, the church can sit quiet during social and cultural revolutions because it does not know how to communicate in troubling or difficult times. The #MeToo movement is difficult to deal with, but Whitney Wollard helps explain the good coming out of the #MeToo movement and how the church has answers during this time.

Is Modern Society Making Us Depressed?

 

It's not often that I recommend a secular podcast, but I have come across one that made me really think.  Although I do not agree with his politics and there are a few PG13 moments in the podcast, Ezra Klein and Johann Hari do a fantastic job unpacking depression and its link to the loss of community identity. I think the podcast is a must-listen because it has implications for the church. In other words, I believe the church can offer real solutions to these problems.
