A few good things for your week
Including doing good together, a new podcast series, two movies, music, update on my new book, recipes, and more
Welcome back to the edition of Field Notes when we all share the small and sometimes not-so-small things that have brought us a measure of goodness lately. It remains a discipline to practice goodness1 right now so here we are.
But first and most importantly:
🙏🏼 Doing Good Together
I know many of us are praying for the thousands of victims, their families and friends, and all those involved in the rescue efforts due to the earthquake in Turkey and Syria. It’s hard not to feel helpless in the face of such tragedy but Global Citizen has compiled a list of 12 ways to help.
Another resource that I’ve found to be steady and reliable over the years is at Together Rising. They are already mobilizing for urgent relief there.
And fellow Canadians, the Canadian Red Cross Red Crescent is also there providing immediate relief as well as contributing to ongoing recovery efforts. You can donate here.
Now, The Good Things
Today, I’m sharing two movies I recently loved, a song that made me cry, a podcast series for those of us who have close proximity to kids, my new paper planner obsession, a recipe, some knitting, some family news, an update on the book I’m writing at the moment, and a few other fun things.
Here we go:
For my fellow bookworms, the most recent Book Corner is right here with all my favourite recent reads and some Kindle deals for you, too. We’re still having a great chat in the comments about books there, too.
Quick aside: I also wanted to invite you to join us at the online Evolving Faith community if you aren’t already there. We’re hosting a couple of upcoming book clubs among other fun things.
First up, we’ll be reading Pete Enns’ new book, Curveball: When Your Faith Takes Turns You Never Saw Coming (Or, How I Stumbled and Tripped My Way to Finding a Bigger God) and then a month or two later, we’ll be reading Kaitlin Curtice’s new offering, Living Resistance: An Indigenous Vision for Seeking Wholeness Every Day.
