The Roundup – Episode 13

A collective of ideas to inspire you, each and every week.

At Newbold, we believe in the power of Monday motivation.

This week, Danilo looks at ‘doubt’. When you take a moment to reflect events that have taken place in your life, or perhaps seen things that have been or are happening around the world, or even just thinking about good old 2020, it can be easy to consider doubt.

A mental period that many of us have gone through it is so important, now more than ever, to have a support system around you than offers you an open and safe space to ask the questions niggling at the back of your mind. This episode, 13, offers a couple of resources to help you on your way.


Book of the week:

"The Reason for God" by Timothy J Keller

If you currently find yourself going through a phase of doubt, this book could be a great starting point for you to kickstart engagement into this kind of discussion.

You be may able to relate to the content in this book with the questions Keller provides, as well as the answers he gives. It is worth remembering that literature of this kind of subjective, and that you don’t have to go by everything you read – if you read this, engage spiritually but also rationally, so you can come to your own conclusions.

This is your spiritual journey – surround yourself by people that can guide you through this process with your best interests at heart. It’s personal.

Song of the week:

"Even If" by MercyMe

An ideal listen for this week’s theme on ‘doubt’, Danilo loves that this song confronts the idea of doubt head-on. We might not see God moving mountains, and even if He doesn’t, we can still experience him. 

“They say it only takes a little faith
To move a mountain
Well good thing
A little faith is all I have, right now
But God, when You choose
To leave mountains unmovable
Oh give me the strength to be able to sing
It is well with my soul”

This week, we hope you find the answers to your questions.
