Have you ever prayed for a Christian writer busy in his task?
A large religious publisher apparently makes a monthly call for prayer for its authors. Their practice reminds us that many in the brotherhood are writing books, Sunday school curriculum, articles, poems, and posts. Wouldn’t it be a grand thing to include them in our regular prayers?
Perhaps you’d like to include such a supplication to the Lord in a prayer with your brethren as well in private.
If you’ve not visited the displays at the FHU Lectureship, be sure and visit our stand. Barbara Oliver is there behind the table, with Mike Brooks, who also has up a display of his work in Nepal and Bangladesh.
We’ve got all the Forthright books, plus some!
The display area is in the gym next to Loyd Auditorium.
Author of the "Choose!" book answers two questions for a ladies day where the book will be distributed.
A sister in Christ bought 100 copies of the Choose book for a ladies day. In order to present the book to the participants, she asked author J. Randal Matheny a couple of questions about the book.
Q: Often we see books that address a problem this way: “If you’re feeling “______,” then read “________,” as a tool to make you feel or do better somehow. You address a different way to approach this area. What inspired you to write about choices, and specifically 13 of them?Read More
Come join the Facebook group for authors and readers.
On Facebook, Forthright Press has opened a group for authors in churches of Christ. It’s open to everyone who’s interested in books in print published for the brotherhood. Authors come from many publishers, and many of them are self-published. All are welcome!
Recent discussions include citation complicated by the Internet, online resources for research, and new books in preparation by members of the group.
Here’s the group description:
Highlighting the work of authors of *books in print,* in churches of Christ, who believe that the New Testament is the pattern for faith and practice. Not for progressives, non-institutional or instrumental positions. Please don’t post notice of events, invitations, or other content not related to writing or authors in churches of Christ.
The groups is designed to encourage authors through contact with each other and to bring authors and readers together.
Please read our wish and prayer for you in this new year.
On behalf of the dozens of people who contribute in some way to the Forthright / GoSpeak / Old Paths family, we pray the Lord’s blessing be upon you for the coming year of 2014.
Fellows and admins of The Fellowship Room, editors and columnists of Forthright Magazine, advisory board members, editors, and contributors of BrotherhoodNews.com, members and collaborators of other sites and efforts, as well as supporters and encouragers of this service done for the approval and glory of God, all join to call upon the Sovereign Ruler for his powerful presence to bring to your life meaning and joy and peace and every good thing.Read More
