Poetry Reading by Irene Sheri

 

Just for fun, match the author and book titles with their companion haiku (from my incourage book reviews last week). All of these books have had great impact in my life, and regardless of when you discover this post, I can promise you they’re still life-changing reads.

A.  John Piper, Don’t Waste Your Life

B.  John Eldredge, Waking the Dead: The Glory of a Heart Fully Alive

C.  Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Life Together: The Classic Exploration of Faith in Community

D.  Shane Claiborne, The Irresistible Revolution: Living as an Ordinary Radical

E.  The Tale of Three Trees: A Traditional Folktale

F.  Shaunti Feldhahn, For Women Only: What You Need to Know about the Inner Lives of Men

G.  Emerson Eggerichs, Love & Respect: The Love She Most Desires; The Respect He Desperately Needs

 

1.

Questions and answers

Inside mind & heart of man

Secret truths revealed

 

2.

The Crazy Cycle:

Marriage spins out of control!

It makes so much sense!

 

3.  

Deep calling to deep

Living in community

Other-dependent

 

 

4.

You’re in a battle

A tug-of-war of the heart

Fight! (or Satan wins)

5.

Sometimes dreams come true

But maybe not like you thought

They’re even better

 

6.

Time is precious gift

Lived for God’s glory or self

Wisdom chooses well

 

7.

Hands and feet of Christ

Compassionate empathy

Reject status quo
