Reading List

When I first left seminary, I felt freed of the necessity of reading and thus was compelled to read all that I could. Then I was promptly thrust into full-time ministry where I felt overly ill-prepared for the task at hand, so I took up more reading to feel more prepared for my responsibilities. I can't tell you how many books (or parts of books as the case may be) I have read in the last year, but I thought I would share some of the top ranking books of this year:

1) Kite Runner

2) The Memory Keeper's Daughter

3) The Stupidest Angel

4) Deepening Your Effectiveness

5) The Measure of a Man

suggestions for the next year of reading?

Loved "The Stupidest Angel"

Reading list:

The Unofficial United Methodist Handbook for Pastors
by F. Belton., Jr. Joyner (Editor), et al.

The Starfish and the Spider: The Unstoppable Power of Leaderless Organizations
by Ori Brafman (Author), Rod Beckstrom (Author)

Well-Intentioned Dragons: Ministering to Problem People in the Church
by Marshall Shelley (Author)

That's a few on my list, we can share...I'd be nice like that ;-P

Don't know what else, especially on the fun side.
