    You might be interested in the work of Dr. Caroline Leaf, specifically a book entitled “Switch on Your Brain.” She is a communication pathologist and audiologist who has worked in cognitive neuroscience since 1985. Her work is on neuroplasticity, science and Scripture. It’s pretty fascinating, because she speaks about how ridding ourselves of toxic thoughts and bringing every thought captive to Christ can allow us to rewire our brains and therefore our lives. Worth a read.

    Thank you, Lynda. Will do. Always looking for good books on this subject.

    It is so encouraging to see others my age that have gone through very similar shifts in thinking! I like the CFRR model, with the second ‘R’ being ‘restoration’. Our original relationship with God is being and will be completely restored.

    Your phrase ‘systemic poverty’ reminded me of a very revealing book, The Locust Effect, written by Gary Haugen, who has been the leader of International Justice Mission for years. He points out the systemic poverty is a symptom of systemic injustice. When a country fails to provide justice/protection for the vulnerable (widows,orphans) they become locked in a cycle of violence and poverty.

    I think you’d be blessed in your new, daunting task by leveraging what Gary has learned about the origins of poverty around the world.

    I turned 65 last year, and my neural pathways seem encased in vibranium. I learned from Meyers-Briggs that it takes a life-changing event to shift to a different mindset (I’m an INTJ). I would welcome a course change, now that I’m semiretired and have more time on my hands. Combating systemic poverty seems a worthwhile goal, but there must be many others.

    The Institute for Faith, Work & Economics has good resources on the Creation, Fall, Redemption, Restoration model, which it refers to as the Four-Chapter Gospel as opposed to the Two-Chapter Gospel of Fall, Redemption. See https://tifwe.org/the-four-chapter-gospel-a-story-of-significance/, https://store.tifwe.org/products/all-things-new-rediscovering-the-four-chapter-gospel-digital-download, and https://www.madetoflourish.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/4ChGospelSummary.pdf.

    Wow Mike. Writing and publishing a book last year was hard. I had to make some substantive changes to my inner motivations. I’m turning 77 this year and feel the need to keep learning. Thanks for the challenge. I’m going to look into some of these references.
