“Cut a channel from your reading to your audience”

Introduction to the revised, “What we are reading” series. Episode 38.

Today I am re-launching a series last seen on my channel in 2016.  It’s called “What we are reading”.

I love to read, or, perhaps more accurately, I love to learn. And reading is one of those channels to learning. However, as my good friend Douglas Jacoby said to me many years ago, it’s important to cut a channel from our reading to our audience. In other words, what I learn is not meant for ourselves alone, but for the benefit of others.

I’ve come to a deeper conviction of the need to read more. Part of relaunching this series is to hold myself accountable to not only read more, but make sure the channel is cut clear to my audience.

I’m currently committing myself to read at least one book a week.

Here is what you can expect from this series:

  1. Some compelling quotes from each book
  2. Why the subject matters – the big picture message of the book
  3. A recommendation – or otherwise!

The first book in the new series is, “Stewards of Eden” by Sandra Richter. Have you read it?

What are you reading at the moment ? Please send me recommendations.
