5 Fun Things

1. Barnstorming

Emily Gibson's blog is described as "a physician's chronicle of faith, family and farm life in rural Northeast Washington state". You will find beautiful words and photos at this blog and it's worth taking a pause here.

2. Startup

"StartUp is a documentary series about entrepreneurial life. The show has been downloaded tens of millions of times since its launch in 2014. Its first season has been adapted into an ABC sitcom called Alex, Inc. starring Zach Braff. StartUp has won a Gracie Award and the Gerald Loeb Award for Distinguished Business and Financial Journalism. " -StartUp


"For the last six months at StartUp, we have been following a group of pastors and their families who’ve shown us what it’s really like to start a church in modern America. It’s a movement of people trying to disrupt one of the oldest, most bureaucratic institutions in history: The Christian church. Here’s a sneak peek." -StartUp

There are six very interesting episodes from July 6 to Sept 7 (2018)

3. Followup Articles

After you have listened to Church Planters on StartUp, a great follow-up: two articles by Pastor AJ in Christianity Today. He responds to what it felt like hearing his own story.


4. Bono & Eugene Peterson on THE PSALMS

"This short film documents the friendship between Bono (of the band U2) and Eugene Peterson (author of contemporary-language Bible translation The Message) revolving around their common interest in the Psalms. Based on interviews conducted by Fuller Seminary faculty member David Taylor and produced in association with Fourth Line Films, the film highlights in particular a conversation on the Psalms that took place between Bono, Peterson, and Taylor at Peterson’s Montana home." -Fuller Studio

5. Smartest Person in the Room- Bias: A Black and White Conversation Between Friends

"Smartest Person in the Room is a podcast that challenges us to seek out the smartest people and learn from them... It's hosted by Laura Tremaine and produced by Megan Tietz."

-Smartest Person in the Room

"Too often, we're scared to have these conversations.

The divide between black and white in America has never felt greater. Is reconciliation possible? In this series, we're exploring how to cross the divide. You'll hear Laura and her friend Yasmin talk honestly and openly about the issues many of us are scared to address. This is not a perfect conversation. It's messy and, at times, uncomfortable. But you'll hear them speak as friends do: candidly, with a slight shorthand, and with knowledge that the other is bringing the best of intentions. We hope this series will be a launching point for you to start having your own conversations. " -Smartest Person in the Room
