It’s a rainy, busy Monday here in Central Indiana, after a busy (but thankfully not rainy) weekend.
Today’s post is brought you by this random list of things:
1. The board game Carcassonne: The Castle. WAY better (to me) than the original Carcassonne. This two-player version has some nice twists. Also, so far, two games in, I remain Queen of the Castle.
2. Daniel O’Malley’s novel, “The Rook.” I had this book recommended to me several times over the last year or so and I finally have gotten to it. I’m 130 pages in and it’s fantastic. For the jacket copy, somebody described the book as a cross between “The Bourne Identity” and X-Men and they are spot on. Did I mention it’s fantastic?
3. Renew 2020. Last December, I agreed to be the co-facilitator and writer for my church’s next five years strategic visioning process. This document is the final product and is now in the hands of the congregation. It was quite the process to get to this final version, but I’m immensely grateful to have been a part of this process.
