Hello. Would there be any interest in me putting together suggestions for summer reading? It’d be Lutheran stuff since that’s thematic to my blog, although I may post my own random list including non-Lutherans, too. For now, though, could you recommend some summer reading suggestions for me?
Anything! Lutheran or non-Lutheran. One never knows when someone finds a rare jewel of a book or even just a surprisingly pleasant way to while away the time. 🙂 I’m up for anything. Except, you know, guaranteeing I’ll read it!
Also, do you want to know what I hope to read and review this summer? I know some people post that in advance, though I don’t consider this blog to be a book review blog especially.
Let me know. Happy reading and happy writing!
Yesterday’s review got me thinking. We should have a “Lay-Friendly Theological Writer” section on my Living Lutheran Author page. Continue reading
May I make a prayer request? I recently found out our town librarian/ library director died suddenly.
CPH Spring Warehouse Sale! And, be sure to check out the Not-Quite-Perfect (NQP) section. There are novels there!
Anyone know when Katie Schuermann’s next book comes out? That’s got to be soon.
There’s another editor on the market. 🙂 Sarah Baughman, Lutheran author of the Regency Romance series, has taken up her pen, and this time it’s a red one! I’ll add her to my list of Freelance Writing Support and offer you her newest webpage: Editing.
Sarah, thanks for branching out to help others in such a useful way! May your reading be good and your corrections . . . gentle?
I’ve been thinking about my free Lutheran resource page. The thing is, I think even more is online: lectures, essays, etc. Classic, current, cutting-edge (ie the edgier crowd). Do I google, google, google? Do I really try to find and sift through them all? That’s more than I’m up for.
“What language shall I borrow
To thank Thee, dearest Friend,
For this Thy dying sorrow,
Thy pity without end?
O make me Thine forever!
And should I fainting be,
Lord, let me never, never,
Outlive my love for Thee.”
“O Sacred Head, Now Wounded,” stanza 8
by Paul Gerhardt, 1607-1676
Here’s a friendly reminder to check out the growing list of Living Lutheran Authors and Lutheran resources!
Holy Week is almost upon us!!! Also, remember to offer feedback before Easter if you’ve had time to go through the thirty-day devotional regarding marriage.
I may or may not post during Holy Week, just so you know.
Let’s talk about something perfectly charming: a Lutheran eighth grader has published her first book! Out of the Woods looks like a charming read about an eleven year old who runs into the woods with her twin brother and gets lost. According to the back of the book, Ruth Chinery completed her first draft in fifth grade and now, five drafts and three years later, it’s published. Way to go! I may be a stranger, but I am so proud of your tenacity! That’s the way to do it: get it down, spend the time and energy, and then hold that book in your hands!
Today is the commemoration of Ambrose, whose writing remains on our lips. Thank you, Lord, for Ambrose and for all who have served you with words and hymnody.
