Week Links: 05 Sep 2020
New websites. A couple of stories. And some required reading. Quite a bit to chew on this week!
I've been working on three new websites of late:
- The Unruly Buddha. This blog pulls together my posts on all things related to spirituality. It's a space for me to explore religion, worldview, life philosophy. How do we live? How do we live well? What is the good life?
- ROOTED. This is a joint venture with my friend, Jared. We are building a community of educators who want to share their expertise. This is where much of my efforts lately have been focused.
- /LIT. (Pronounced "slash lit.") I'm building this website with my high school seniors, a group of students dedicated to writing about media and culture from a Gen Z perspective. It's fledgling. Not quite ready for primetime, but enjoy a preview!
Here on Week Links, I'm going to pull together my work on those websites, as well as my posts here at sbhebert.com, as well as some other new and noteworthy stuff that I find. Rather than sending out individual posts as email newsletters, I'll be sending this newsletter out each week. (Those of you that are subscribed, you'll be getting it in your inbox!)
I hope you find it enjoyable, helpful, and encouraging!
