What We’re Reading 08/19/16

Welcome to What We’re Reading. This is where we share articles and other media 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

Want to know more about our new Deputy Mayor Michael Junk? The Tulsa World has some insight for us.

If you haven’t read this article about a Tulsa teacher leaving for Texas, then take some time to read it. Then take some time to pray for our underpaid and under-respected teachers before school starts.

Life

We love this article about the art of collaboration from Tulsa’s own Sam Stanton. Why collaborate? Sam briefly tells you why…and how.

Another Tulsan (and a 918 contributor), Courtney Westfall, shares about her new “World’s Okayest Mom” mug and why it’s a beautiful thing.

Having a bad day? This article will give you a few tips for what to do and what not to do. We love the last one.

Faith

Ever visited the hospital and weren’t exactly sure what to do? These seven tips for effective hospital visits is written for pastors, but is applicable to all. We’d add one more: “Don’t stay too long. Visiting a hospital makes us feel better, but can make the one trying to heal more tired. Show you care by leaving.”

“Cynical people, especially Christians, have a way of eroding the faith of those around them. Cynical people don’t tend to make those around them cynical as much as they make those around them timid.” This devotional on cynicism and faith is worth reading.
