Sunday Summary | QOTW

Welcome to this week’s Sunday Summary post where I’ll be recapping my week in blogging, sharing a few personal reflections on my life at this time, and dangling a Question of the Week in front of your eyes in the hope that you will bite, and in doing so teach me a little bit more about yourselves. Let’s jump into the post!


The Week in Review

I was excited to kick off the week with some Monday Music. This week I shared a live version of a song containing one of the best grooves in my musical collection. Many of you shared your love for this artist in the comments. To listen to the song click here.

For my Thursday Theology post this week I did something a little different. Rather than sharing a theological discussion I shared a piece of ‘theological poetry’, if we can call it that. It’s one of my favourite poems of all time. You can read the post here.

I rounded off the week with my regular Friday Philosophy post, which this week focused on a big idea by an ancient Greek thinker named Democritus. This post should be of interest to scientists, philosophers, and theologians, and you can read it here.


A Few Personal Reflections

  • I’m delighted to have made excellent progress with Song 8 of my music project this week. I got a bit behind schedule with this song, which made me panic (even though my schedule is self-imposed!) but after some prayer and a walk in the sunshine the Lord was gracious unto me and the song is sounding super!
  • We’ve had proper old April weather in the UK this week. Grey cloud, constantly. Seemingly endless drizzle. But I’ve actually quite enjoyed it as I’ve been recording so wouldn’t have been able to get out much anyway. I feel so blessed to have a roof over my head!
  • I realised I’ve been writing so much about ancient Greek philosophers that it would make sense to add an ‘Ancient Greece’ category to the blog. So now you can find all of those posts in one place – take a look at the category list and you’ll find it under ‘Philosophy’.
  • If you’ve visited my blog this week, thank you so much! Please know that I really appreciate my readers – you lot are my best friends. You’re in my prayers!

Question of the Week

Can you name one book that has impacted your life recently?
Let me know in the comments below!

  1. My book for this week is titled, “Y’shua, the Jewish Way to Say Jesus” by Moishe Rosen. He describes the many ways in which Jesus fulfilled the expectations and requirements of the promised Messiah.

  2. When Life is Hard, by James MacDonald. This book is for anyone going through trials, testing, a thorn in your flesh. Excellent!

  3. One Thousands Gifts by Ann Voskamp is a Christian memoir about gratitude and overcoming pain. The author lost her sister when she was 5 years old. It tackles the age-old question, where is God when bad things happen? And her life experiences throughout the book teach you some surprising revelations about God’s love.

  4. It’s not exactly edifying, but MR James’ short story, The Ash Tree, was quite haunting. Also, I listened to Adrian Plass’ Sacred Diaries on Audible recently – made me laugh so much!

    1. They sound like great recommendations! I’m yet to come on board the Audible train, I should consider that because I do a lot of walking while listening to audio of various sorts. Thank you for sharing!

  5. G. K. Chesterton’s Heretics and Orthodoxy – totally exhilarating (as was his little gem on Thomas Aquinas). Currently reading Kim Fabricius’s fantastic Propositions on Christian Theology; Jordan Peterson’s 12 Rules and about to start Anthony Thiselton’s massive The Holy Spirit now that I’ve concluded his brilliant 1 Thessalonians through the centuries.

  6. The Book of Mysteries by Jonathan Cahn. It is eye opening to the ways Jewish traditions and the Old Testament impact us even today spiritually. It’s a 365 day devotional book. Very enlightening.

    1. That sounds brilliant, Stephanie! Might have to grab that if it’s available for Kindle, although I already do daily Bible reading so doing a devotional on top (along with everything else) might be a bit much. But I’ll check it out!
