Here is your weekly dose of Friday Focus, a smattering of what I’m reading, doing, listening to, watching or pondering.
What I’m reading – One of my favorite Franciscan spiritual writers is Fr. Murray Bodo,O.F.M. I took his classic “Francis, The Journey and the Dream” off of the shelf this week to use for a prayer service. Funny thing, I ended up reading again, the entire short book with delight and inspiration. Poetic and imaginative in vision, Bodo let’s the reader experience St. Francis as much as learn about him.
A free product I’m trying – My Doctor recommended FreeShield for me to place in my iPhone case. Independent scientific research states that FreeShield reduces cell phone radiation by up to 87%. Go to this link and you can print your own Freeshield.
What I’m listening to – I had such a joy last Wednesday night watching Ed Sheeran on Austin City Limits via YouTube. He is an excellent musician and songwriter. It was so much fun to watch the concert with my daughter and wife who are both big fans of Ed. I too am now a fan.
Quote I’m pondering – “It’s not going to be easy to change things.” ~ Daniel Berrigan
