Help Church Worker Wellness

This post is particularly for LCMS church workers or their families about a project that may be able to help us all, rostered or otherwise. 🙂 Heidi Goehmann is helping to put together a collection of 30 free devotions to help church worker wellness within the LCMS. There will be a  synod church worker wellness site offering them as free PDFs and then everyone can benefit! The premise is worker-to-worker, hence the restriction on who writes for it.

Mortifying our Flesh

It’s Lent, a time to remember Christ in His humiliation, with His suffering and death for our salvation.

In shorthand, it’s the LWML quarterly and its often eager to accept submissions.

100 Ton Press Call for Stories

It’s election day. Let’s not talk about that. Let’s focus on something less angsty and more opportune! It’s always exciting to hear about open submission opportunities and 100 Ton Press has made such an announcement! In particular, they have a call for stories to be included in an upcoming collection, They Don’t Know I’m a Christian at the Coffee Shop.  Sure sounds like a good thing to think and write about on an election day or any other day. 🙂
