Here’s my April 29 newsletter. To receive my latest articles, favorite religion reads and other updates in your inbox each Saturday, sign-up here.
My other life as an avid basketball fan has left me sad and sleepy this morning. I was at a Utah Jazz game until after 11 p.m., where I watched my team fail to clinch their playoff series.
However, putting together my newsletter this morning has put some pep back into my step. My busy week and a few very early mornings resulted in important articles about international religious freedom, tiny homes and the relationship between personal faith and education. I’ve had several conversations with my boss over the last few days about how to keep important issues like religious violence on readers’ minds, and I’m excited to try some new article strategies in the coming months.
Enjoy this line-up of links, and be sure to cheer for the Jazz tomorrow afternoon. They need all the help they can get!
