Hello, this is Yuko again.

The podcast that I recently like, series no 2 is: …..

Strengthening the Soul of Your Leadership  by Ruth Haley Barton

This is the podcast that teaches us how important it is for Christian leaders to cultivate a habit of seeking deeper relationship with God. 

Recently, we JCFN staff are reading the book Pursuing God’s Will Together: A Discernment Practice for Leadership Groups (Transforming Resources) together and share our thoughts on monthly basis.  Our JCFN board member, Sachi-san leads us.  In this book, we are learning to discern God’s small voices so that we are able to make good decisions. The podcast helps me to understand this book better, too.


If you feel spiritual dryness as you lead a ministry, or if you have a desire to cultivate deeper level of relationship with God, this podcast shows concrete methods to do that.  If possible, listen from the very first series.  It introduces some exercise for spiritual formation, such as examen and lectio divina, which Sachi Nakamura introduces us to us in this blog, too!!

By the way, this Ruth talks very fast.  (^◇^;)

Hello, I am Yuko Ozeki

Recently, I listen podcasts a lot while exercising at Gym as well as doing chores at home.

I like it because it’s not like Youtube that you actually have to sit and spend sometime for it but that you can do while doing something.

So, today, I would like to share with you what I am listening. 


The first one is …

the Next Right Thing」Emily P. Freeman

This is the podcast about Decision Making, yet, you learn in order to make a good decision, you have to create space for God to work in your life, and create a rhythm to allow God to lead your life, so that you can discern what matters and what doesn’t.

I like her voice a lot.  It’s soothing and I feel serenity. hahaha.

this became a best seller book, too. 

hope it will be continued….
