I attended a church conference in St. Louis the last week in October and signed, sold and gave away more books than I had anticipated, to people from California to Colorado to Chicago and points beyond.
It’s a humbling experience to me to see the reactions of people who have read the book. The store website is up – only a few pages left to modify and set up but the ordering and shipping module are set up now.
On this site, I’ll be talking about faith and how to live it. I’m adding a link to Dr. Margie’s website. She offers a testimonial on the back cover of the book. Her organization is currently working in Haiti and is a non-profit.
I’ve also added a link to the St. Francis Virtual House of Studies where they produce the Progressive Catholic Review. They are part of the Franciscans of Reconciliation, a Franciscan organization in the Ecumenical Catholic Communion (ECC).
May the peace of Christ fill your life with joy,
Peace and blessings to you, and may this day be filled with joy and happiness, and an appreciation of the gifts God gave you.
The book is selling steadily, and feedback has been wonderful. I’m grateful for all the support and encouragement I’ve received. I hope to have everything ready between today and tomorrow, and will move forward with how I hope to manage this site.
The first focus will be on Thanksgiving, and its place ahead of the season of Advent (for Christians). In the past I have used themes for some of the seasons for my reflections, and this year I’m contemplating something similar. Once I’ve chosen what I want to do, I will let you know.
The book should be in my hands by October 7th, and I’ll be having a book signing at Holy Spirit Ecumenical Catholic Church after Mass.
Here’s the front cover of the book. The hope is that this will be in print by October 10th, which I like because the date is 10-10-10. Interesting. Though I haven’t figured out any significance to it. -John
Coming soon! The book! Publication date to be announced in the next several weeks (by end September at the latest).
