Weekend Wanderings is back! Here are a few links and best posts I’ve read from the last few weeks:

For all of us who feel we are just too busy, Donald Miller offers some great tips in How I Learned Not to Be Overwhelmed. (This is by the way the standard response to the “How are you?” question in America – “Busy”).

Michael Hyatt words something I have observed in leadership for years so well in “Leadership and the Law of Replication” Plain and simple, people do what we do? If you don’t like something in your team, look in the mirror. A must read!

Seth Caddell weighs in on a topic getting a lot of press, Christians response to politics with “They Will Know We ARe Christians by our..Political Opinions?”

Weekend Wanderings is back! Here are a few links and best posts I’ve read from the last few weeks:

Scott Williams combines grace and sports. It does not get any better than that in I’m Thankful to be Afforded the same Grace as Ray Lewis. 

My friend Tony Alicea contributes a great article to Prodigal Magazine, I Will Try To Fix You. In this season of Valentines Day, this is a great post on relationships and the Bible.

Church Leaders has a brief and powerful post, Eugene Peterson’s Book Title is Genius, referring to his book A Long Obedience in the Same Direction. I agree! I mentioned this in my book on Grace as well.

CNN Religion blog, John S Dickerson has a great article, “A Word to Christians: Be Nice.” This reflects the hateful attitude many believers reflect on social media. I’ve touched on this issue before. This is a great addition to the discussion.

Sammy Adebiyi offers a profound and thought-provoking piece, creatively titled “The Gay Community and One Time Jesus Called Me the N-Word.” via Prodigal Magazine. His challenge is to consider which is more important, love or our theological opinions. Check it out!

Donald Miller makes the Wanderings with “How My Faith Has Changed…” Really, if we are not changing, does that mean what we currently believe is 100% accurate? Great thoughts.

Seth Caddell weighs in on Old Testament Failures, promoting the beauty of forgiveness and Hebrews 11.

If you are looking for a truth to meditate on, look no further than Jason Vana’s post on the Righteousness of God.

Some recent current events inspired the following posts which are worth your time:

Many writers desire a move into the realm of being a speaker. Some preachers decide to pick up the pen to extend their influence. Still others aspire to be a jack of all trades.

Is it possible to do both? Which one is more difficult, speaking or writing?
