Three Things

A couple of friends of mine, Andy Patton and Phillip Johnston, have recently set up a new project called Three Things. Three Things is a newsletter digest of three resources to help you engage with God, neighbour, and culture. It is a great venture, which I wanted to bring to your attention (I will also be appearing on it in the next few days).

The purpose of the newsletter is bring some of the best things that Andy and Phillip have encountered over the last few days to people’s attention. Andy describes what it involves in more detail:

Each issue will have not one resource (too little), not ten (TMI!), but three things to encourage deeper engagement with God, with your neighbor, and with current culture. We’ll provide a short blurb beside each recommendation to let you know why we think the resource is worth your time.

Here’s what you’ll get each time:

READ: We will kick off each issue with an essay, long-form article, or book recommendation. The idea here is to give you some food for thought that is a bit chewier and more on the analytical side, helping you to understand cultural happenings or Christian ideas in a more detailed way. The READ resource will take more than ten minutes, but the places it takes you will reward the time it takes to get there.

LISTEN: Here you will find something to watch or listen to — a talk, lecture, sermon, interview, podcast, etc. — to consider as you walk, drive, do your housework, or patiently sit and take notes.

LIVE: If the READ category is more analytical, LIVE links are focused on everyday life with God and neighbor. These resources usually won’t take you more than ten minutes to watch or read, but could lead to long thoughts and discussions.

You can visit the Three Things website and subscribe here. You can support their work on Patreon here.
