A Few Miscellaneous Announcements
I’ve been writing my brains out, but it hasn’t shown up here yet because it has all been prep for exciting things coming in May (I think). One writing project (the one I’m not sure will be ready to share in May) I am not at liberty to share just yet, so you’ll just have to sit around, wring your hands, and wonder (cuz I know that’s what you’ll be doing, right?).
- I’ll be writing at Deeper Story next week. I mentioned a month ago on Twitter how I was working on one about women and church, and then I didn’t actually post on women and the church. That post needed to simmer for awhile. A long while. It’s coming together now, and I’m excited to share it with you.
- I’m excited to be joining a new website that launches Sunday called The Well-Written Woman! I will be posting there the first week of the month as well.
- Have you heard about the Rally to Restore Unity? I love this idea to refocus on essentials and poking mild fun at one another instead of engaging in verbal warfare and dismissing “enemies” that has characterized Christian dialogue recently.(Do you like my sign? Did you laugh? Snort a little? Maybe?)
- I’m finishing up a book I cannot wait to share with you. We’re doing a group book review on Deeper Story in the next couple of weeks of Andrew Himes’s “The Sword of the Lord: The Roots of Fundamentalism in an American Family“ and let me tell you. It’s good. The kind of good that hurts a little, makes you think a lot, and explains so much about how evangelicalism got to where it is today. You should pre-order it now.
- Sunday I am starting a new reading project. I’ve been wanting to do this for several months now, but the time wasn’t right. Then a friend emailed me yesterday and asked me to pray for a good friend of hers who has gone from being a staunch atheist to a religious columnist. Travis has committed to reading the Bible through, from cover to cover, in 90 days. I’m praying for him, and I’m reading the Bible in 90 days too. Please pray for him, for those of us joining him in reading, and consider reading along as well.
