Shallow Sam

Issue #57


In last week’s introduction I wrote a little bit about my changing relationship with my iPhone, notifications and social media. I ended up developing these thoughts further and have written a full article on the subject. You can read that via the link below.

As well as this, I wrote a short post inspired by the mission statement of Mother Theresa’s Order. It’s all too easy to see people through the eyes of judgment rather than love. And, when we do that, we end up missing out on seeing the face of God in all manner of places and people all around us. Even if religious motivation isn’t relevant for you, it is worth pondering what we miss out on when we fail to see the goodness in everyone around us.

On top of these two links, there is the usual selection of links and podcast episodes that I’ve been exploring this last week or so. I’m sure you’ll find something to pique your interest.

Have a great weekend!
