Courage is almost a contradiction in terms. It means a strong desire to live taking the form of readiness to die. ~G.K. Chesterton
Today my regularly scheduled post can be found over at my friend Andi’s blog (link at the bottom of the page). It’s about writing and life and courage – check it out.
Andi’s got a fabulous thing going over there, writing about art and books, music and life. Her mother passed away on Thanksgiving Day, about 6 weeks ago, so if you’re looking for someone who knows what it’s like to suffer loss and writes about it in a raw, beautiful way, you’ll want to add her blog to your feed reader.
But before I hand over that cherished link, here are three things I’m super-duper excited about these days:
1) We had our first week of “8 Weeks in the Red” and the whole thing was remarkable. If you are looking for a place to safely explore ideas around religion, faith and spirituality, (and you live within driving distance of Gap, PA) you should think about coming.
2) I’ve got a few speaking gigs lined up to talk about my latest book, “83 Lost Sheep,” co-written with Gerry Stoltzfoos. If you’d like me to come to your church to talk about it, let me know.
Now head on over to Andi’s blog and check out my guest post on writing and courage.
