We Become What We Worship
If you enjoyed yesterday's sermon on the power of worship, then you might want to check out one of the books below. James K. A. (Jamie) Smith elaborates upon much of what I said in the sermon.
I would recommend the first one, You Are What You Love. It is written at the popular level (i.e., he won't bog you down with jargon and unfamiliar concepts). But if you're interested to wrestle with the content on a more collegiate level, then Desiring the Kingdom is the one for you. Hope you enjoy!
P.S.- I had an opportunity to meet Jamie when I was in college. He is very intelligent and wise, but also very humble and compassionate. Great guy.

I've been feeling the need lately to share those extra thoughts that don't make it into Sunday's sermon. So this is where they'll end up!
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life, and the life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. (John 1:1-5)
