- I love this article in ChristianityToday on mentoring as discipleship. So often we strive to so finely script discipleship that we render it inert when it should be more of an intentional relationship that might look a lot like mentoring.
- I’m a firm believer in packing light these days. If you need a reason to, check out this article on reasons to consider it.
- I found this to be a helpful article in the current political climate. With as much complaining and moaning (and at times serious name calling) we’d be wise to remember the call to prayer.
- Taylor Swift, with a major party foul:
Swift’s music is entertaining for many. She should absolutely be able to use any location as a backdrop. But she packages our continent as the backdrop for her romantic songs devoid of any African person or storyline, and she sets the video in a time when the people depicted by Swift and her co-stars killed, dehumanized and traumatized millions of Africans. That is beyond problematic.
Hopefully one day we’ll have a better understanding (as Americans) how to treat colonial issues.
