God, we give thanks for the work of this life. Teach us that the best work serves others. Selflessness means community and belonging, each of us caring for each other. Grant us the ability to share what we have created as you have shared life and grace and health and peace with us. For the sake of the Christ we ask it. Amen.

How do I report a fake account that’s pretending to be me?

Do you have a friend who just sent you a Facebook friend request — even though you’ve been friends for AGES? Most likely, the new one is a fake: Impersonating your friend in order to gain your trust and get you to click a link or share info or call a scammer by phone.

Step One: VERIFY that your friend hasn’t created a new account. Some do, for lots of reasons. But if they haven’t, you’ll be the bearer of unfortunate news.
Step Two: REPORT the fake account. The instructions are in the link below.
Step Three: WARN your friends that this is becoming more prevalent. The best defense is to keep an eye out for each other and check in when something weird shows up in your feed.

If you’ve been the victim of impersonation (your account is still functioning and someone else hasn’t gotten hold of your password), you simply need to report it. If you think your actual account has been hacked, give me a shout. There are some steps you’ll want to take.

I was tagged by Derek W. White in a post where his 10 “Stuck with Him Books” were listed. Great list, by the way. You should check it out.

In your status name at least 10 books that stuck with you after you stopped reading them. They don’t have to be the ‘right’ books just books that had an impact on your life.

Mine are:
1. The Bible, particularly, Ephesians, Galatians, Genesis, and the Psalms. It’s not a cop out. I do this for a living because I think it’s important, not the other way round.
2. Celebration of Discipline by Richard Foster - I’ve re-read, re-purchased, given away, and recommended this book more times than any other, except the Bible.
3. Lord Valentine’s Castle by Robert Silverberg - This one got in my head and stayed there. No reasons.
4. To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
5. A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens
6. It by Stephen King. You can also add in about 40% of his stuff, mostly from the pre-Dome days. I’m a big fan of the Dark Tower cycle (not just the series, but the way it weaves in and out of his work).
7. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
8. Leading Beyond the Walls by Adam Hamilton. This was when I learned that I wasn’t the only pastor in the world who was tired of “But we’ve always done it this way, even after it stopped working.”
9. Neuromancer by William Gibson
10. The Chronicles of Amber by Roger Zelazny. The shaping and reshaping of reality and its consequences for the shaper and the shaped + plus swords, sorcery, and intrigue; what better way to get a geek interested in ontology that that?

Runners up: Autumn Lightning, Centering Prayer, Divine Hours, Faithquakes, and Fresh Wind, Fresh Fire.

For details on the runners up, some other books I recommend, and a listing of some blogs I read on a regular basis, visit my website: http://ift.tt/1unfuf8

Now, I’d love to know what some of my friends, mentors, and role-models read. Post your 10, tag me, then challenge 10 friends to name their own list: 10 books that stuck with you after you stopped reading them. Remember, they don’t have to be the ‘right’ books just books that had an impact on your life.

Scott Aleridge, Alison Carter, Jacob Armstrong, David R. Reed, Jorge Acevedo, Bill McAlilly, Cynthia Astle, Adam Hamilton, Connie Waters, and Dave Clark.

God, teach us to defeat our temptations by choosing your will over our own. Temptations begin with our desire, and our tempter only offers that which we already seek. Call us to follow. Lead us in the paths of righteousness for your name’s sake. Bless us then to lead others. We ask it in the name of the Christ. Amen.

God, let your love overwhelm us throughout the night and into the coming day. Let our thoughts and dreams be of a world that you call us to inhabit. Let our goals be those of transformation and let our first object be the transformation of ourselves. We ask it for the sake of the name of the Christ. Amen.
