The Lectio Letter - A Fortnightly digest of resources relating to life, faith and discipleship...

This is about buying books..and sharing resources for life, faith and discipleship..

For the last decade I've been an (over)enthusiastic book buyer. More recently developing our work within the University of the Nations, training people to be more faithful and fruitful kingdom leaders, I have been searching high and low for books and resources that will meet people where they are at, and take them further on.

The rubber just hit the road as we pioneered a brand new programme which takes the "M.A. degree in Christian Formation and Discipleship" we've been working with and takes the content to a practical level for those engaged primarily in leading discipleship training contexts in their mid-twenties to forties. 

As we developed this 9 month distance learning course we have been searching for books and resources and suddenly came into the realisation, we just don't have the kind of spare money to buy all these books to figure out which one's we should use.

So thats the need. 

And we are not new to needs in this support-raising life. We could do what we normally do, which is pray, ask God if there is anyone we could invite to help us financially with this need. But as I considered that, I thought about a different option for raising this budget. (Everyone holds their breath in nervous excitement)

I often find myself in situations where I am recommending books, getting asked for recommendations and I realise, not everyone has the freedom, desire or ability to read all that they could, but what if there was a way for me to share the resources we are discovering as we develop this new programme and continue to develop the M.A.? Resources that could interest, help and develop you and those around you..

So, here we are, at the end of 2019, and this is my not so grand experiment, to send a fortnightly email newsletter to people who would like to support us with $5 a month solely for the purpose of helping us access discipleship resources and pass them on.

I'll be up front with you...I'm not sure how this is going to go...

Right now, the plan is to include videos, music, a quote and short(ish) thought from at least one book we've been researching with that month. 

If you think this is something you'd be up for, I'd really appreciate your support..
