The Roundup – Episode 32

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

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

Well! April isn’t going to be a month Danilo (or the rest of us!) won’t forget in a hurry for 2 reasons:

  • It snowed. It actually, actually snowed in April. Granted, it didn’t last very long (ie. a whole entire morning), but it happened. What?!
  • Lockdown restrictions are finally start to lift, giving us a small sense of some kind of normality…we can barbecue with friends, and we can even pop into a real-life shop for that pair of socks you’ve wanted for a while! Exciting.

It has made Danilo realise that you can miss even the little things when you realise you can’t have them.


Book of the week

'Crazy Love' by Francis Chan

Danilo loves this inspiring, challenging book that considers even greater possibilities on your personal walk with God. Thought of the day from the book: thought for you for today from the book. Francis says that ‘even though I glimpse God’s holiness, I am still dumb enough to forget that life is all about God and not about me at all.’ Watch the Roundup video for more thoughts on this brilliant title.

Song of the week: "Simple Gospel" by United Pursuit

God is so much greater than our definitions of Him. So much greater than our human language, trying to find ways to communicate our definition Him. This song reflects it all. Enjoy.
