What we’re reading…07/10/15

Each Friday, we post “What we’re reading.” Essentially, it is a list of posts that we wish we had written or we feel add to the overall conversation about Tulsa, Life, and Faith. If you have an article that you want us to consider, email our lead contributor, Aaron Tiger (aarontiger@fumctulsa.org).

Tulsa

Indoor Places to Play and Stay Cool – Tulsa Kids magazine has put together this list of places to go with your kids during the summer heat. It’s a great list, check it out.

14 Downtown Developments You Should Know About – If you are like me, you can’t keep up with all the development going downtown. The Tulsa World has put together a slideshow with 14 projects in the works.

Life

To Build or Break a Child’s SpiritReally well done article on parenting and building up your children. I love the perspective that it gives and the goal of relationship plus behavioral transformation that both are important aspects to being a parent.

Five Minute Journal App – Gratitude is key. I once heard worship described as gratitude towards God, and I think this five minute journal app, could be a great way to have a prayer journal of gratitude towards God. When we change our focus, it changes our perspective.

Faith

10 Things I Wish Everyone Knew about Hell – Jerry Walls thinks more about hell than you do, because he believes in heaven. This short article is a great introduction to the concept of hell and a loving God.

Jesus, Justice, and Race – As a Christian, if we want to look at race relations, it is important to see the model of Jesus. Craig Keener explores that for us in this piece.
