Merry Christmas to all of you and Happy New Year.

Here is the latest list of "good reads"/podcasts from your fellow collegiate ministers:

Love Dare

C.S Lewis’s A Grief Observed

Again, the MCAP series(with Hugh Halter) has been an invaluable source of enhancing our focus and our direction in ministry.

One book that has been particularly helpful is “The Life You’ve Always Wanted,” by John Ortberg. We’ve used the material in our personal growth, in our college Bible studies and College Sunday school class.
