What I’m Crunching — December 3, 2023

In light of the war between Israel and Hamas, I went looking for an account of the holocaust that I’d not seen before. Night by Elie Wiesel is an “unmistakably autobiographical account of the author’s own gruesome experiences in Nazi Germany’s death camps.”

From the Goodreads summary, “Told through the eyes of 14-year-old Eliezer, the tragic fate of the Jews from the little town of Sighet unfolds with a heart-wrenching inevitability.” I was moved to tears more than once while listening to this book.

What I’m Crunching — November 26, 2023

I’ve been part of a new leadership development effort at the church my family is part of. A group of about 12 guys are going through this book by Malphurs. It’s been valuable, not just in what I’m gleaning from the book, but also in the deepening relationships among the guys in the group.

God is showing me that just as he builds and balances his church with congregants who have unique characteristics in the categories of styles, gifts, approaches, and spiritual gifts, he constructs leadership teams in the same way.
