Do you want to be INFLUENCED? Get ready…

Here are some of the incredible resources that came up during class this week –

Dan mentioned C S Lewis’s A Grief Observed

“We were promised sufferings. They were part of the program. We were even told, ‘Blessed are they that mourn,’ and I accept it. I’ve got nothing that I hadn’t bargained for. Of course it is different when the thing happens to oneself, not to others, and in reality, not imagination.”
C.S. Lewis, A Grief Observed

Peggy’s picks: The Grace in Aging, Kathleen Dowling Singh; and Fr. Richard Rohr ( see his site here)

Gretchen’s fav – Nadia Bolz-Weber – her site here

Also mentioned was Steve Wildsmith – local journalist and recovering addict.  He pulls no punches, and can be devastating – try this on for size.

I’ll through mine out there – Krista Tippett’s ON Being.  A powerful interview about a priest working with gang members in LA here

Look for a post tomorrow for this Sunday’s adventure…John

    Greg Boyle’s memoir “Tattoos on the Heart” is a great read. He is the priest that is interviewed by Krista Tippett.
