What We’re Reading…01/22/16

“What We’re Reading” is where we share articles and posts that have impacted our contributors in one way or another.  If you’ve read a great article that is worth sharing, send it over to Aaron.

Tulsa

If you are a regular reader of “What We’re Reading,” then you know we’ve been following the efforts of A Way Home for Tulsa, read about the great progress they have made in our city during their first year.

We won’t get too political here at the 918, but when the newest Oklahoma State Senator is a graduate of the same high school as our lead contributor, we make an exception. Congratulations to J.J., and may he and all the state senators lead us during some difficult times.

Great to see the Brady district filling up with new life. 36 Degrees North, Tulsa’s Basecamp for Entrepreneurs, is a great new asset for downtown.

Life

This article on digital media and “phantom community” by Fuller Youth Institute is eye-opening and important. This is certainly a must read.

We have more questions than answers about how to properly find a sport or activity for your children and when they should specialize, but this survey of current college athletes is certainly worth reading.

Faith

We have not gotten to watch all of this yet, but if you have 30 minutes, then you should watch this video “Building Family Faith: In the Midst of a Frantic Schedule.”

Did you know that the band, Stars Go Dim, with their current hit song, “You are Loved” is based in Tulsa? Read a little bit about their story including a recent road-trip they made for one of the band members.
