Collection of Webs: September

A slightly late post of collection of webs for September, my apologies. The start of term has been slightly manic. But here we are for a round-up of articles, blogs and fun stuff to read or watch that I noticed in September! Enjoy

Blog Posts worth reading:

From the Internet Monk: A Joyful and Vibrant Life: Cultivating Community as Slow Churches “It can seem more practical and convenient to keep to ourselves and minimize the risk that we’ll get entangled in the lives of others. And yet, as much as we are formed by Western individualism, and though we have allowed that individualism to shape the way we read scripture, our calling in Christ is to community…”

The Science of What Makes an Introvert and an Extrovert An interesting article about how Introverts and Extroverts approach situations and how their brains react.

Alison Bolton blogs about her new Role after being a UCCF staff worker. This is a brilliant article about how we view work and where we place our identity.

Also Kath writes her thoughts about work, which is another brilliant and challenging blog post: “It’s hard to maintain this wide picture of work in a world which places so much value on our paid work/job status. I’m so frustrated at the moment that our government can’t see this or express value in a life that doesn’t involve paid employment.”

Dave Bish blogs on 5 ways to do Social Media better – this is very helpful, especially if you love using social media or if you find it tough to know how much and in what ways to use it!

Books:

Just finished reading the Silmarillion by Tolkien. A wonderful book full of the history and stories of middle earth.

Now I am reading Eragon. Which is a fantasy book about a boy and a dragon.

And I am also reading Connect, which is about how to get more people to volunteer in church.
