Last Year, Part Five

We have reached out to different people within & around the HSAL camp to find out what from the last twelve months inspired them. Over the past month, we’ve posted a series of lists. Our hope is that you will get an idea of where we are coming from. Here’s what Steve Scott, author, poet, & spoken word performer, turned in:

The year 2018 was consumed with moving out of our old house/selling it, living in an apartment while the new house was finished so I’m going to base my list a bit on that experience…

#1The mere accumulation of things

(CLICHE ALERT!) How much stuff you can accumulate over X years of living as a family in one place.

#2What stays? What goes?

The hesitations and rationalizations that go through your head when contemplating discarding things/books you will never use/have time to read etc. (you hear about this sort of thing, but the actual experience is inspiring / sobering)

#3Heather Hammers & Nelli Andreeva

Heather Hammers. Always. Nelli Andreeva. Always. These two are singers who need to be way better known.

#4Abide And Go (Missional Theosis In The Gospel Of John)

Michael J. Gorman‘s excellent book on these complementary aspects of spiritual growing as talked about in John’s Gospel.

#5The Gospel of John

John’s Gospel itself. A perennial source of wonder, delight, revelation and instruction. In 2018, as much as any other year…

#5b“Truth & Beauty” (June 30 – September 30, 2018)
