New Feature: Look Back & Look Forward

A look back on May and a look forward to June -

I often get asked what I’m reading and watching. Most of what I engage doesn’t make it onto the blog — I don’t have the capacity to write on the vast majority of what I encounter (though that’s the dream).

But I’m certain that it’s all forming and informing my thoughts, feelings, and perceptions.

So I’m introducing a new monthly feature! A Look Back & Look Forward. A simple list of what I’ve finished in the last month and what’s on the top of my stack for the next month.

If there’s ever a title that you want thoughts or a conversation guide about, let me know! The ever-expanding resource library is ever looking to expand.

Look back on books I finished in May:

  • Fiction
    • The Good Earth by Pearl S Buck
  • Nonfiction: Church / Theology
