5) Rachel Jankovic: Community and Accountability – Ok, so Zoe pointed this in my direction and reckons it’s a must-watch for those discipling women – although much applies to the whole church. It’s a 44-minute talk given by author Rachel Jankovic, taken from the women’s pre-event at a conference called Grace Agenda 2018, but essentially here’s the rub: if you care about Bible reading, developing church communities of accountability, and growing disciples that persevere in the task of immersing themselves in God’s word, then I think this is worth 44 minutes of your time. It’s certainly got us talking in our house.
6) Asking Questions in Leadership – Michael Hyatt explores the importance of this topic with a series of short exploratory articles, e.g. how do we ask better questions and create a culture of curiosity in our leadership?
7) The science behind why ‘Three Lions’ is the perfect World Cup song – For something a bit different, because I assume you’ve all got this on repeat ahead of Monday night?!
