Friday Focus – December 27, 2019

Hello everybody!

Here is your weekly dose of Friday Focus, a smattering of what I’m reading, listening to, learning, watching or pondering.

I hope you are still enjoying these sacred days of Christmas and ready to start a new year and a new decade!

What I’m readingIncarnation by Richard Rohr. This simple email article is beautifully and simply written; reflecting on and explaining the miracle of the Christ of the Universe being born in a human. I’ve read this a few times to capture its depth and richness.

What I’m watchingBlessing by Brother David Steindel-Rast has a wonderful and reflective way of helping notice Blessing in the simplest of things. Enjoy this on a cold winter’s night.

Sacred Scripture I’m pondering: “In times past, God spoke in fragmentary and varied ways to our fathers through the prophet; in this, the final age, he has spoken to us through his son, who he has made heir of all things and through who he first created the universe.” Hebrews 1:1-2

Practicing ridiculous generosity: Behaving generously is a pathway to a richer, fuller life. Behaving generously opens our hearts and minds to the larger picture of gratitude, joy and living a peace-filled life. In the next several installments of Friday Focus, I will be offering “the week’s ridiculous generosity challenge.” If you don’t like the one I propose, feel free to create your own.

The week’s ridiculous generosity challenge: Buy a flower for someone (co-worker, sibling, parent, retail clerk at a store) and just leave it on their desk, bed, table, work station, etc.

Quote I’m pondering – “Bless what there is, for being…bless it because it exists; you need no other reason… ~ Br. David Steindl-Rast

Another Hold Me Tight for Couples – Candace and I are hosting another Hold Me Tight for Christian Couples. It will be on January 24 &25, 2020, here in Lafayette. Our focus is to make these intimate and powerfully effective. Because of this, we are only taking 6 couples. Be sure to sign up here.

More on Braintap – BrainTap’s neuro-algorithm produces brainwave entertainment — the synchronization of brainwaves to a specialized sound — with no user effort. The result of which is full-spectrum brainwave activity. Using this matrix of neuro-activity, each of BrainTap’s sessions is encoded differently to ensure maximum neuro-plasticity — the brain’s ability to reorganize itself by forming new neural connections, resulting in a flexible and resilient brain.

Curious to learn more? Sign up for a free trial of BrainTap here.
