I am proud of pastors who chose to move to virtual services today! Good choice, sisters and brothers! In this time of isolation there is REAL potential to transform our churches, if we leverage this period as an opportunity to thicken our gospel. 1/ #COVIDー19 #virtualchurch
In his book, Prayer, @FosterEveryday says connection w/ God happens in the silence. Could this be opportunity for national #soulreset? Could it be an opportunity for us to connect w/ God again—through deeper introspection and intentional listening to voices usually overlooked? 2/
I’d like to recommend #fivebooks for pastors to dive into with their congregations over the next 2-3 weeks; while we have the blessing of this national #soulreset. 3/ #COVIDー19 #SocialDistancing
1. Since the #VeryGoodGospel came out on #audiobook I’ve been hearing from readers/listeners that it’s been transformational for them. Consider listening to the audiobook with your community. The Very Good Gospel: How Everything Wrong Can Be Made Right…
2. #TheHarmonyTree is a SHORT, BEAUTIFUL, POWERFUL children’s book for adults! @randywoodley7 asked me to read it to a group of leaders. When finished there was silence, tears and God’s thick presence. The Harmony Tree: A Story of Healing and Community… 5/
3. Dr. James Cone’s The Cross and The Lynching Tree is a short sharp theological treatise that brings Jesus’ relationship w/ Black America and, by extension, everyone into sharp relief. Reflection on Reinhold Niebuhr is worth the price of the book! 6/
4. I was there when my friend @valariekaur gave a sermon on eve of 45’s inauguration. She told the world to *breathe and push*. This manifesto was inspired by that sermon. #READTHIS #audiobook See No Stranger: A Memoir/Manifesto of Revolutionary Love… 7/
5. I just purchased Ada Maria Isasi-Díaz’s Mujerista Theology: A Theology for the Twenty-First Century! HIGHLY recommended by my pastor, @JoseHumphreys. He quoted it when guiding #RubyWooPilgrimage thru East Harlem last year. Let’s read it together! 8/…
There are so many great books out now. It was difficult to choose 5. I chose these books bc they all have potential to stretch the church beyond the box we live in—and force God to live in. They also inform us for way forward! #virtualchurch #COVIDー19 #soulreset #readinglist 9/
For pastors/faith leaders who decide to read/listen to The #VeryGoodGospel with your community during this #COVIDー19 #SocialDistancing, I would LOVE to do a free Zoom conversation with your congregation! Just contact us at to set up a time! 10/10
BONUS: Here are more #mustread books I highly recommend in these #soulreset #SocialDistancing #COVIDー19 days!
Okay. You see how hard this is?! 🤦🏾‍♀️Finally, here are #mustreads by mentors, s/heroes and colleagues! Use these #SocialDistance #soulreset days to read these classics. Limited to 9, but I’d like to add The Sacredness of Questioning Everything…
