The Winner * The Book Club * The Bouquet

It's been a fun week around here with old and new friends coming and going, keeping company together, and sharing favorite 'desert island' reads all while putting yourselves in the running for the $25 Barnes & Noble Gift Card Giveaway.

Congrats, Pam!

The Book Club ...
The new Book Club begins right here on the blog the first weekend of February.  Yay!  We'll have six conversations on Invitation to Solitude and Silence: Experiencing God's Transforming Presence by Ruth Haley Barton.  You can get your copy through the link above or grab your Kindle edition here.  

Read why I chose this book as my all time favorite by going there.

Each gathering will open up on Thursdays or Fridays.  I can't wait to sit around our virtual table, throw out a few conversation starters, and let you do your thing in the comment section.  We'll be chatting about our obsession with wordiness.  Being dangerously tired.  Our odd resistance to silence.  What rest for body, mind, soul could look like for where you find yourself in this season.

For Gathering #1, read right up through Chapter 2.  We'll be discussing Beyond Words and Beginnings.

~  The book is only about 140 pages.

~  You don't have to sign up or read the book to participate.
