Dear steward,

I’m at the Shepherd’s Conference, so I’ve got a briefer email than usual for you this week. It’s already been fun to meet some of you who are also here this week. If you are at the conference and see me please come say hello!

Before we dive into the link roundup I did want to draw your attention to a podcast interview I did recently. I think you’ll enjoy this conversation with my friend John Perritt on the Local Youth Worker Podcast.

We cover a variety of topics in this one including Christian Minimalism, creativity, rest, and of course productivity.

Listen on: Apple Podcasts | Spotify

THE ROUNDUP 🔗

The best links I found this week

How to Cultivate Wisdom in an Information-Saturated World (5 mins)

Ana Ávila / The Gospel Coalition

Some really helpful insights in this one.

We deceive ourselves, convinced we need to know more rather than know well. We drown in information while allowing our souls to languish in a wisdom drought.

My Simple Habit for Smarter Book Reading (6 mins)

This was really thought-provoking. The author suggests that one of the best ways to better engage with books is to deliberately seek out critical reviews of them.

I don’t believe critical thinking is a skill at all. Instead, most of what we refer to as critical thinking is simply knowing more about the topic being discussed. Experts can spot the fallacies in certain arguments because they’ve steeped themselves in the history of ideas and debates in the field for years. Newcomers have not, and therefore cannot.

But therein lies our difficulty: how do you read a book like an expert without actually being one?

Text - Integrate all your messages in one app

This is a cool app I came across this week.

One of the most annoying things about having so many tech platforms is that they all have some kind of messenger service built in. The result: Dozens of inboxes to keep track of!

This little tool combines some of the most popular messaging services into a single app.

🖋

A DOSE OF WISDOM

Quote of the Week

We must give up the vain idea of trying to please everybody. That is impossible, and the attempt is a mere waste of time. We must be content to walk in Christ's steps, and let the world say what it likes.

J.C. Ryle
