Earlier this month, I shared my 2019 words of the year: rest and community. This year, to help me better live these words, I want to get some education and perspectives around both of them. I’m sure I won’t get to every book on the lists below (I have read all the articles!), but I’m going to start interlibrary loaning them and adding to my ideas of rest and community.
If you’ve read any of these books or you have other suggestions, please let me know!
