- George O. Wood–aka, “Dad”–uses dot-to-dot art as a reminder to live one day at a time. “If you choose to draw the line today that connects the morning to the evening — God will show you the next day where the new dot is. Keep the pencil of your life moving according to His daily will, and someday God will let you look back and see a portrait that makes sense … and is beautiful.”
- I interview Alan Fadling for the Influence Podcast about his new book, An Unhurried Leader: The Lasting Fruit of Daily Influence (IVP Books, 2017). Here’s what I wrote about Alan’s book in my review: “The key thing, then, is for Christian leaders to let Jesus into their hearts. Does that sound too simple? Perhaps. Then again, I was amazed at how often An Unhurried Leader opened my eyes to things in my heart that are crowding out Jesus and thus misshaping my influence. I hope it will do the same for you.”
- We note a Pew Research Center finding about Americans’ continued high regard for the Church. “Nearly 6 in 10 U.S. adults say the church has a positive effect on the country, while 26 percent say it has a negative effect. By comparison, 55 percent have positive views of postsecondary learning institutions, and 36 percent believe higher education is doing more harm than good. Just 26 percent believe the national news media is helping the country, compared to 63 percent who say the media’s effect is negative.”
