People ask me what I am reading, watching, or listening to. Here are some Recliner Recommendations for the month of November.
Audiobook: Presence by Amy Cuddy
I’m currently listening to this book in audio form (about 97% done). I give it a five-star rating! Amy has done her research well and tells us how we can learn to be present even in stressful situations. This book has great implications for those of us who struggle with self-doubt or insecurity. But it is equally provocative for the high-achiever. Put it on your “must read” list!
Podcast: Introvert Entrepreneur
I started listening to this podcast a few months ago. It is an excellent resource for those who recognize themselves as introverts. Beth Bielow gives advice on how we can be successful when we lean into our introversion. And her guests are equally encouraging.
Watching: The Blacklist
I’m not much of a television person. However, there is usually one show I am following. Right now, it’s The Blacklist. James Spader is amazing! It’s my fun outlet and I hope you check it out.
Reading: The Homiletical Plot by Lowry
I’m reading this book in paperback form. I know. Some of us still do that sort of thing! It is a challenging read, but I am finding it helpful. It is written for the pastor, but I can see it would be useful for anyone who gives oral presentations.
Sermon Series: Half Truths by Adam Hamilton
I recently finished preaching a series inspired by Adam Hamilton’s book, Half Truths. We had a great response from this series. So many found freedom from misrepresented doctrine they had come to believe. It would be a great resource for pastors or individuals.
Scripture I’m pondering:
“But the more they were oppressed, the more they multiplied and spread; so the Egyptians came to dread the Israelites…” Exodus 1:12
Hope these are helpful. Check it out and pass it on. And feel free to share your own recommendations in the comments.
