Most of the e-shorts I've read have been pretty good but this one really fails to live up to the possibilities of its title. ( )

He suggests making "Ten Personal Decisions for the Common Good" to help improve things from your corner of the world. This is a selection from The (Un)Common Good: How the Gospel Brings Hope to a World Divided.… (more)
