Found while Surfing

I found this article while surfing the internet. Reading Wars by Philip Yancey. It reminded me of a recommendation for a book called The Shallows. What the Internet is Doing to Our Brains, but I have been too busy reading articles and following click bait to read it. Now I can blame being busy on packing as the root of all evil. But having all of that admitted, I do think I should spend more time reading. I hope my sons are reading this article. I have written it short so they will not click away before they get to the end unless hopefully they follow the first link above. 😉 The first paragraph of Philip Yancey’s article is below to get a sense of what he communicates.

Books help define who I am. They have ushered me on a journey of faith, have introduced me to the wonders of science and the natural world, have informed me about issues such as justice and race. More, they have been a source of delight and adventure and beauty, opening windows to a reality I would not otherwise know.

My crisis consists in the fact that I am describing my past, not my present.

We leave for Africa in 6 days and we are running out of space in our suitcases!
