What we’re reading…08/21/15

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

Thanks, Tulsa Kids for this list of storytimes throughout the Tulsa area this fall. Most of them are at libraries, but Pottery Barn, Guthrie Green, and Tulsa Toy Depot also have ongoing storytimes.

We love this concept, and we are hoping that it will not only be great for Tulsa, but more importantly lives of the women who are getting an opportunity through the Resonance Center for Women.

Life

“And as every parent who has read a bedtime story knows, this is all happening in the context of face-time, of skin-to-skin contact, of the hard-to-quantify but essential mix of security and comfort and ritual.” There is something so profound about reading to your children, not just intuitively. This article provides the science and statistics behind it.

“The church appears to play a very important social role in keeping depression at bay and also as a coping mechanism during periods of illness in later life.” We would call the “coping mechanism” the Holy Spirit, but this is still a fascinating article.

Faith

This is a great list of sins that the church does not focus on very much, but are still detrimental to you.

We love this look at “God’s plan” and the questions we should be asking.
