Is It Time to Quit ‘Quiet Time’? I’ll summarize Dru Johnson and Celina Durgin’s important article in my own words: We need to seek God through the Word and prayer (I would say desperately!), but we need to study Scripture the right way (by keeping context and the intention of authors in mind), not simply cherry-picking Scripture McNuggets that make us feel good. That leads to reading the Bible often, but remaining functionally illiterate as to what the Bible means. One suggestion they share is for more communal reading of long-stretches of Scripture. I’ll suggest using a resource like Open the Bible Story (that’s free) to get a grasp on the big story of the Bible.
Men and Emotions by Joseph Hussung. A good article on emotions, not just for men. Joseph shared the Feelings Wheel, a very interesting tool that seems helpful for helping others process their emotions. I’m going to encourage my wife to use this in her ministry to adolescent girls.
