This weekend my husband told me about a Lutheran hymn contest! I’m quite excited. The short of it is that Concordia Theological Seminary is having a hymn competition in honor of its upcoming 175th anniversary. (Yay for my Alma Mater!)

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.
I hadn’t heard they were doing it again, but apparently they are. CPH is once again offering the “Read like a Lutheran” summer reading program. They’ve tweaked the read.cph.org website and, so far, it seems easier than ever. 🙂
Hello! How do you feel about free books? Ok, that was the easy question. How do you feel about Facebook video posts? You see, it seems to me, one might accidentally see my face if I did that. 😉 Still, should I give it a try sometime?
Happy Valentine’s Day. Here are two Lutheran Valentine poems I whipped up for the occasion, one from a wife, one from a husband. (We’ll also see if condensed versions score any votes at the Sister, Daughter, Mother, Wife‘s annual Valentine Contest.) And, whether you are wed or not, may you ponder the love of Christ for His Bride, the Church, even as it affects us everyday and is memorialized and active in God’s Word and Gifts, on this day and always.
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. 🙂
