Ok. The 2020 CPH Black Friday sale is running until November 30th. There are some really good deals so this is a post (with a bunch of affiliate links) with highlights. 🙂
CPH kindly put together a YouTube playlist of Thanksgiving Hymns! Nice!
My (stupid) text button won’t let me embed right now, so here’s the link. 🙂
Happy Thanksgiving! I’m thankful for all of you!
Here’s another LCMS Advent resource find: Light in the Darkness: A Hymn Journal for Advent & Christmas. I love the idea of a light in the darkness hymn journal!
You know that I gather names of living Lutheran authors. I’ve really enjoyed a lot of what I’ve discovered and these folks (you writers, you) have written on ALL SORTS OF THINGS! I’m SO PROUD of the variety of genres and subject matter! There are Lutherans writing long series, stand alones, and everything in between. But my favorite read-for-pleasure-novel lately comes from Lutheran author Rhonda Chandler and it’s called The Ritornello Game: A Marlonburg Story. (I really, really hope that means it’ll become a series!). It was perfect! Quite different from her previous novel but so well done! Those two books may be in my top ten of Lutheran-penned fiction!
Let’s put together our yearly list of Advent resources!
I absolutely adored Lutheran author Emily Cook‘s Tend to Me: Devotions for Mothers. It’s set up with brief little devotions followed with a prayer and some additional questions & Bible passages for further reflection. I liked them so well, I read several at a time, almost gulping them down. 🙂
Yay yay yay! I’m especially excited to tell you about this new release: Alan Kornacki’s Rejoice, O Zion! Sing! Hymns for the Lutheran Service Book One-Year Lectionary and Other Occasions!
Return to the Lord. That sentence is in some of my favorite hymns, poetry, and sentiments. 🙂 And now it’s the title of this years daily devotions for Lent and Easter. Return to the Lord is available for $2.49 starting today at Amazon and CPH. 🙂
Who else accidentally feels like Lent is upon us?! Ha ha haa
I’m going to start poking around to find 2020 Advent resources for (likely) Monday’s post. Let me know if you’re aware of any.
Hello again! I still don’t have my computer fixed, but we have a bunch of new releases coming up so let’s hope my husband is patient while I borrow his laptop to blog a bit. 🙂 A recent release is a collection of essays compiled by Lloyd R. Bailey Jr: Duty to Defend: Defending God’s Word from those who misuse it in the gun-rights debate.
