Around The Grounds (07/02/14)

Around the Grounds is a list of articles or posts I found interesting this week. I hope you do too.

China’s Way To Happiness – An interesting interview about current research into China and the effect of Christianity upon it.

Toxic Leaders – One way toxic leaders accumulate their power is by systematically ignoring and devaluing dissenting and/or minority voices. Andy Crouch explains in Playing God, “The powerful have a hard time seeing their own power and its effects. We do not see when our exercise of power is cutting off life and possibility for others.”

The Dangers of Voluntourism – Another article talking about tourists who volunteer for holidays or for short periods of time.
