(K)Drama for Your Mama

We’re midway through on this weird 2020.
I needed to take a mental break, so I’m writing this post about nothing when there are so many things happening all around us.

But I’m working on hashing some thoughts out on that too.
Turns out, making videos isn’t my cup of coffee. I enjoyed it, but it felt like work.
I think I’d rather hide behind a keyboard than hide behind a camera lens.

What that means is that I’m ready to dive back into this blog and not vlog as much. Mainly because Mosaic Church has gone online before launching. So you can join us weekly for liturgy at our youtube channel (click here and subscribe).

I have a (fairly measly) goal of 24 books a year. I really should up the number…

1. Anglicanism by Mark Champan
2. On the Come Up by Angie Thomas*
3. Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates
4. Sacramental Life by David DeSilva
5. Born a Crime by Trevor Noah*
6. Disability and the Way of Jesus by Bethany Mckinney Fox
7. Where the Crawdad Sings by Delia Owens*
8. Anglican Theology by Mark Chapman
9. Evangelicals on the Canterbury Trail by Robert Webber and Lester Ruth
10. Where Do You Think We Are by Shea Serrano
11. Fleishman’s in Trouble by Taffy Brodesser Anker
12. Christ on Trial by Rowan Williams
13. Immortal Diamond by Richard Rohr
14. Scythe by Neil Shusterman
15. What Do We Do with Evil by Richard Rohr

And currently reading:
David and Goliath by Malcolm Gladwell
Why I’m No Longer Talking to White People About Race by Reni Eddo-Lodge
Normal People by Sally Rooney
Oh, the asterisk signifies that it was an audio book.
I had my ordination exams in January, hence the Anglican/Episcopalian themed books at the beginning of the year.

So far, On the Come Up (I’d read anything Angie Thomas puts out at this point), Born a Crime, and What Do We Do With Evil have been the best reads. Half of the books were read during quarantining.

HOWEVER.
During Social Distancing, I (re)discovered my joy for all things Korean culture.
My wife rarely watched Korean dramas but we, by chance, started watching Crash Landing On You and it was over.

Since Crash Landing On You, we’ve seen:
Guardian: The Last and Lonely God
Mr. Sunshine
Itaewon Class
Hotel Del Luna
Descendants of the Sun
Not to mention the variety show Running Man. (oh and all the 3rd/4th Generation Kpop I’ve been catching up on)

(… I also feel like I’m leaving a lot out…)

Were Korean dramas always this good…?
At one point, we were consuming so many Korean things that for the first time in… who knows how long, I dreamt in Korean.

If you have any book or Kdrama recommendations, lay it on me.

In a few days, I’ll have a post on thoughts about leadership ready to go.
2 things that leaders must do (out of many, of course) are: building trust and bearing pain.
And I think many of us church leaders have embraced the iron fist of leadership rather than the towel and basin leadership Jesus modeled.

Thanks for reading (and up putting grammar with my mistakes).

  1. Thanks for the Kdrama recommendations! I’ve had a couple of people mention these to me before but haven’t ever checked them out. This summer seems like it will be the perfect time. 🙂
