Ladies and gentlemen, please wish me well for the week ahead! Like I said yesterday, I plan to take most of next week off from blogging to catch up on other things. Having said that, tune in Monday because I’m reviewing a most excellent book, Shadow among Sheaves, for its debut! Beautiful writing, captivating story. Anyway, for your reading pleasure today, I get to share with you a hymn text sent in to me as a guest post by Lutheran author Mary Antholz. It is a disaster hymn text applicable to the terribly flooding we remain so mindful of.

So much to read and so much to write! How can I find some time? Actually, I think I’m going to keep blogging through this week and then take a week off just to reset my house, head, and put the to do list in order. 🙂 Meanwhile, enjoy another find I’ve had: What Happened to our Churches: A Collection of 26 Blogs About Regaining Spiritual Energy by David S. Luecke.
Yesterday we planted our garden. Not all the plants, of course. 🙂 Or even most of the plants, but the sugar snaps are in! Sweet peas & snow peas!
I’m so excited! Rev. Dr. Harold Senkbeil is coming out with a new book, The Care of Souls: Cultivating a Pastor’s Heart, due to be released June 26th!
I’ve got an excellent resource for you! A website named and consisting of A Collection of Prayers: Christian Prayers, Ancient and Modern.
Too many fires to put out today! So, sorry, another short post: a video from “Smarter Every Day:”
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!
