Monday musing

1. I was reminded yesterday by Will's sermon of grace He started a six-week series inspired by 'Jesus continued'.

2. The current UK leadership vacuum reminds us all of the need for some sort of plan. Michael Hyatt wrote a book called 'Living Forward' which we could have done with a bit of recently.

3. Eric Metaxas has a new book out. In this review, my interest peaked at the mention of a James K A Smith book called 'You are what you love: The spiritual power of habit' which has reviews packed with theological debate. I lingered a while reading them.

4. Interesting reflections on Ian Paul's blog about 'priestly ministry'.

5. I am still enjoying Jonathan Martin's 'How to survive a shipwreck' which I would recommend to anyone who wants to dig deep below your own surface waters.

6. I have rediscovered Piper talks in the early and sleep-interrupted hours and listened to this one called 'The bondage of the will'.

7. The BiOY has been such a blessing recently.

8. Andrea Leadsom was very composed until Marr caught her napping at the end with a blinding question about her tax returns.

9. Tim Challies mentions a few new and notable books.

10. Brexit and social divisions.
