a. Jared Wilson post - Please read (link in email)
b. Staff reading assignment – Over the next several months, we will be investing in reading time as a staff. You will receive a shared Google Doc with a list of books, each one assigned to a different staff member. You will receive the actual book within the next 2 weeks and will be assigned a due date to read the book and prepare a general report to present at All Staff on a given day. At the end of the presentations, we will do a book swap and you will have the opportunity to exchange books and read a new one that may interest you based on the All Staff reports.
