Who My Teachers Are

Who My Teachers Are August 19, 2012

This post is a follow up to the message I preached this morning at Mt. Vernon. The BIG Idea was: The better the teacher, the better the learning. Who are you learning from? Here’s a list of what I’m choosing to learn from today.

BIBLE – my personal Bible reading plan has me reading the Old Testament once a year and the New Testament four times a year. Here’s what I’m reading this next week:

  • Sunday – Proverbs 11-12, 1 Corinthians 7-9
  • Monday – Proverbs 13-14, 1 Corinthians 10-12
  • Tuesday – Proverbs 15-16, 1 Corinthians 13-14
  • Wednesday – Proverbs 17-18, 1 Corinthians 15-16
  • Thursday – Proverbs 19-20, 2 Corinthians 1-3
  • Friday – Proverbs 21-22, 2 Corinthians 4-6
  • Saturday – Proverbs 23-24, 2 Corinthians 7-9

BOOKS – I’m always reading books, trying to learn more life lessons from those who are a little further down the road. Here’s a sampling of recent non-fiction books I’ve read:

  • The Tipping Point, Malcolm Gladwell
  • Presidential Courage, Michael Beschloss
  • Unbroken, by Laura Hillenbrand
  • Great by Choice, by Jim Collins
  • Platform, by Michael Hyatt

BLOGS – I’m now a blog junkie, learning snippets of truth in real time from today’s great leaders. Here are a few that I subscribe to:

PODCASTS/SERMONS – Here’s who I listen to when I’m on the road to get me thinking.

  • Andy Stanley Leadership Podcast – North Point Community Church
  • Mosaic – Erwin McManus in Los Angeles. He’s very philosophical, but will always give you a new point of view.
  • Pinelake Church – based out of Jackson, MS. Largest church in Mississippi, I believe.
  • Willow Creek Church – the teaching pastor is an Australian guy, which makes sense, because the church is in Chicago.

MUSIC – Here’s what I listen to in place of Katy Perry and Lady Gaga

  • Radio Swiss Classic – This is actually what I listen to the most. It’s a free continuous classical musical station based out of Switzerland that I listen to through Itunes Radio. No joke. There’s nothing better than hearing a sweet lady telling you in a sultry German voice about an upcoming symphony. (Full disclosure: I don’t speak German)
  • Hillsong United – great worship band
  • Passion – great worship music
  • Chris Tomlin – he is the chosen one
  • Mutemath – edgy Christian band that I play to freak out my staff sometimes

Not sure how scary this peek into my world was, but this is what I put into my brain to help me become the person God created me to be.
