Each Friday I post four recommended reads, listen, learnings, gadgets or restaurants. I really appreciate the hundreds of folks that join me each Friday and for the hundreds more that join me each weekday for my Weekday BLOG. Thank You! I would be so honored if you would take a few seconds and share this and today’s 4forFRIDAY with your social media friends and followers.
Today’s 4for FRIDAY
A Great Film: Hidden Figures
Every year, Jenny and I try to see all of the films that have been nominated for “Best Picture.” This year, nine films have been nominated and we’ve seen all but three of them. At the top of the list is Hacksaw Ridge, but in a close race, Hidden Figures comes in second place. A great film that will break your heart, stir your emotions, and leave you smiling. If you enjoy a true story with redemptive tones, you’ll love Hidden Figures.
Another Great Film: LION
As another one of the films that have been nominated for “Best Picture,” Lion comes in at number three! I was so shocked at how great this film is. It was Jenny’s number one! The cinematography is fantastic, and the redemptive storyline is rich with humor, struggle, heroes, and goats. It may seem like a film that’s off the radar, but it is so good! Make sure you see it soon!
A Great Read: The Inner Game of Working
This is the book that Tom Brady touted as the book that built mental toughness into his game. While I am still feeling the sting of his comeback victory in last Sunday’s Super Bowl, I’ll freely admit that he is the best that ever played the game at QB. The Inner Game isn’t a light read, it’s a challenging read for the folks that are driven to learn and lead better.
A Helpful Read: 8 Tips for Taking Good Sermon Notes
We live in a noisy world. Whether in the back or foreground, through talk radio, music or conversations, we’re almost constantly ingesting audible information. By week’s end when we arrive at church and settle into the pew for a sermon, we try to silence the noise and prepare ourselves to hear something altogether different—God’s living, active Word.
Good biblical teaching is more than just inspiring. It has the power to change hearts! With that in mind, taking notes on the message is a great way to stay engaged, leaving reminders for reflection later in the week to revisit the message and discuss with others.
Try these eight tips, and record thoughts and sermon notes. Before beginning, invite the Lord to bless the hearing of his Word.
A Really Good Place to Grab a Light Dinner: Pub Ten in Peachtree Corners
I was a bit leery of the name, thinking this place would be the typical fried bar food of burgers, fries, and grossness. Wow! I have a grilled cheese, with tomato and bacon on fresh sourdough, with a cup of Tomato-Gruyère cheese soup. Jenny had a delicious salad. It was fresh and delicious. You should try this place. We loved it!
BONUS #2: A Quote I am Pondering from Tim Keller
“Vows give love a chance and create stability so the feelings of love, always very fitful and fragile, can grow strong and deep over time.”
Thanks again for joining me on the 4forFRIDAY. I’d love to meet you and put a face with a name. So, if you can make it to Sugar Hill Church this Sunday, I’ll see you at 9:30a or 11:00a. We also stream live at live.sugarhill.church.
Have the Very Best Friday,
