Welcome to the this week’s 4 for Friday, a collection of recommended READS, LISTENS, LEARNINGS, GADGETS & RESTAURANTS. I’d love to hear your thoughts about these! Shout back with a simple email or reply via the comments following the post.
1. A Really Great Watch: The Crown, a Netflix Original – I was shocked! I thought I’d watch this series so as not to allow Jenny to fall into a football coma, but wow! This is a historical series from Netflix and it is not only significant in its historical value, but it is greatly entertaining. Let me know how you like it.
2. A Timely Read on Setting Goals by Jim Rohn – The most important benefit of setting goals isn’t achieving your goal; it’s what you do and the person you become in order to achieve your goal that’s the real benefit. Goal setting is powerful because it provides focus. It shapes our dreams. It gives us the ability to hone in on the exact actions we need to perform to achieve everything we desire in life. Goals are great because they cause us to stretch and grow in ways that we never have before. In order to reach our goals, we must become better.
3. A Very Good Movie on PPV: Hillsong, Let Hope Rise – Capturing the on-stage energy and off-stage hearts of the Australia-based band Hillsong UNITED, HILLSONG–LET HOPE RISE is a new motion-picture genre—the theatrical worship experience. The film explores Hillsong’s humble beginnings and astonishing rise to prominence as an international church whose songs are sung every Sunday by more than 50 million people worldwide. I’m a fan of Brian Houston and Hillsong. I think you’ll enjoy this film.
4. A Really fun Film: SING – I haven’t been to an animated feature film in years, but this was entertaining and has a great storyline. I know, surely I’ve lost my man card, but when you watch this film in a packed theatre and it gets a standing ovation…well it’s different. I was one of the folks clapping. I think you will too. I can’t wait to take my oldest grandson to see it again!
And a quote I am pondering:
“Those who serve supreme causes must not consider what they can get but what they can give.” –Winston Churchill, 11 August 1950
Thanks for jumping on board with me! I trust these are helpful for you. I created this weekly list as a result of the many folks that asked what I was reading or what I was listening to, or what resource would I recommend. Enjoy!
Remember, this is a collection of recommended Reads, Listens, Learnings, and Gadgets…with the occasional restaurant review and YouTube suggestion. This is not a class on doctrine or theology…enjoy and share!
Happy New Year, Chuck
