All Work and No Writing Makes Bret a Dull Boy


It is certainly true that I feel better, have more energy and fewer headaches when I’m exercising regularly. I hate exercising, but that doesn’t change this reality.

Meanwhile, reading and writing regularly has the same effect on my mental clarity, focus and energy as exercising has on the physical. I do not hate reading and writing – I love it – but lately my crazy, wonderful life has pulled me away from this discipline.

…And laziness has pulled me away from physical exercise.

I hope to reengage the reading/writing with an upcoming series of book reviews…a project that has been on my to-do list for some time now. I’m nearly finished with the first two and hope the others will follow in reasonable succession.

If anyone wants to read along, here is a list of books that will be addressed on Missional Monks in the near future. You can click the titles to pick up your own copy from Amazon.

Now, if I can just get my fat self to the gym…

Thin Places by Jon Huckins and Rob Yackley (read part 1 & part 2 of the intro, read the review, read the interview)

Creating a Missional Culture by JR Woodward (read the intro, read the  review)

Simple Harmony by Larry Duggins

Living Jesus by Randy Harris (read the review)

Missional Spirituality by Roger Helland and Leonard Hjalmarson

Missional God, Missional Church by Ross Hastings

Living Mission edited by Scott Bessenecker
