“In any creative enterprise there are risks, mistakes, false-starts, failures, frustrations, embarrassments, but out of this mess – when we stay with it for long enough, there slowly emerges love or beauty or peace.” Eugene Peterson

1 The salutary warning, from The Shallows, by Nicholas Carr.
2 A dream bucket-list of bookshops to visit, perhaps….just perhaps!
3 Chris Russell’s great prompt. Why evangelism is non-negotiable. Always.
4 Don’t just write a book, but write a serious book. A work of depth.
5 Characteristics of the false self: God’s beckon out of the ‘pretend life.’ Great EHS resources again.
