Vanderbilt Divinity Library has put together interesting slideshows for each week of readings. Each slide show has a variety of artistic depictions of the weekly readings and highlights some of the key texts. I have enjoyed looking through them and think you might enjoy them as well. You can find the list of weekly readings and corresponding slideshows HERE

Often we don’t know what to say and sometimes we start to say things that aren’t that helpful. Here is a video by an amazing leader, Brene Brown on the difference between Empathy and Sympathy. It’s worth the watch and the reflections. Find it HERE. (Note: skip the ad Youtube puts before the video. It’s strange)
