The Weekly Hit List: November 22, 2013

Living into Focus by Arthur Boers was reviewed in Mockler Memo.

“In the midst of chaotic schedules and beeping smartphones is precisely where God calls us to find or create relevant, contextualized focal practices. A healthy Silicon Valley career — just like that of a Montana-based writer — requires focal practices like meditation and study, prayer groups, jogging at noon, the evening walk, the music lesson or dance group, and the household feast on weekends (at least).

“Boers never suggests that technology per se is evil, nor does he invite us all to move out into rural communes. His message, so biblical, so appropriate today, is to be thoughtful and aware and make space and time in our lives for what is truly important.”
