I’d like to highlight another resource today: the Lutheran Heritage Foundation. Have you heard about them? They do tremendous things for ministry work around the world and have been a big influence on my life.
Ned and I just returned from a great district church workers’ conference. It has me thinking of many posts to write, and I was fortunate to be able to help with the CPH table, so I got to browse through lots of great books! Woo hoo! Meanwhile, for now I want to ask you about opposites.
Short and to the point: sometimes I love novels about people who want to write who end up writing. It’s like a niche genre which writers write for other writers.
Corny? Sometimes. Fine by me. It’s encouraging!
I also love it when people in books just realize something and take steps to make things better.
I think too many contemporary books focus on scandal, shock, and turns. But I’m sure I’m not the only one to roll my eyes or just put the book down.
Edgy does not equal good. Or worth reading. Certainly not.
Thank you, Lord, for writers who simply encourage while writing beautifully.
Folks, write! Even if you aren’t daring, edgy, or in some way trendy!
Ah, what to post for today. How about I ‘fess up to this: this year my Lenten discipline attempts are not going that well. Of course, what do I mean by “well”?
Today I’m looking for good resources on science. I don’t mean as a way to teach it to my kids, and I don’t mean to objectify or personify it. At the same time, I’m hoping for more than “faith and science” stuff. For example, I’ve had this thought—tell me if I’ve gone too far!
