Blessed Reformation Day! Happy 500 years! Happy Hallow’s Eve, depending on when you’re reading this! 🙂 And, happy almost NaNoWriMo! (Shudder) After going from one busy, here is another busy to temporarily consider. Ha! Anyway, below is an interesting and thoughtful alternative to a frenzied 30 days approach: “How to Write a Novel in 30 Days.”
I do also want to say that–largely over the weekend–I may have received enough info and anecdotes for two weeks of blog posts! Woo hoo for me! 😀 And, hopefully that means “Meet, Write, and Salutary” can be especially enjoyable as we transition into colder weather.
Happy Commemoration of Hymnwriters Philipp Nicolai, Johann Heermann and Paul Gerhardt! 🙂 I know. You all made cakes to honor it, didn’t you. Still it’s a good day to honor the writers who came before us and have blessed generations with their powerful texts and biblical messages! Raise a glass or a song!
In more Reformational news, I’ve got a selection of Reformation videos to share with you today.
Here’s a friendly reminder to let me know about Advent resources you hear about. I know that LCMS Deac. Heidi Goehmann and Sarah Baughman are putting together something short and sweet for daily Advent reminders, and Steadfast Lutherans often does.
I know, I know. Otherwise it’s too early to talk about Advent. 🙂
In other news, I totally forgot to plug the Closed Communion book on its release date! I saved the date on the, um, wrong date. Mea culpa! I very much look forward to getting a copy although, well, at this rate it’ll have to go on my Christmas wishlist.
Usually I pride myself on being a reasonable person. Sure, I kind of try to do it all–I aim for Superwoman. Still, yesterday I was very depressed about my project and trying to be a writer in general. My kind, calming husband pointed out that Luther’d have trouble, too, these days.
Free resource time! Especially suitable with the Reformation Anniversary soon to arrive! It is a fun little tool for your Reformation celebration with your church family: a Reformation mini-play. It’s only about 12 minutes. Personally I thought my family and a few other volunteers might work it up for Reformation Sunday during our Sunday school opening time. It’s not loaded down with props or anything. It’s written for children and narrator, and it can be either read or memorized. AND, it’s written by none other than Rev. Hans Fiene of Lutheran Satire!
Mary Jackquelyn Moerbe (rhymes with Furby) is an LCMS deaconess, writer, speaker, and homeschooler. She holds a bachelor’s degree in Letters, a combination of history, literature, language, and philosophy, and a BA in music. Her master of arts degree is in theology with deaconess certification from Concordia Theological Seminary, Fort Wayne. She and her husband, Rev. Ned A. Moerbe, have six children and live in Oklahoma.
