Always a willing participant in the viral nature of community building, let me pass along this note from Susan Baller-Shepard, from the www.spiritualbookclub.com.
I am a Presbyterian minister, social worker, and writer, and I’ve facilitated www.spiritualbookclub.com
for nearly ten years now. I am a parish associate pastor at First
Pres-Normal, IL. We also have a local spirituality book club group that
meets in Barnes & Noble once a month, makes meals for the homeless,
collects items for women in prison, etc. We now have a new blog www.spiritualbookclubblog.blogspot.com which I think would be of interest to the Presbymergent crowd.
We’re collecting interviews to highlight the spiritual lives of real
people on this blog. If you’d like to be highlighted, please email me
your responses to the below questions and a photo, and we’ll post them.
Enjoy reading what’s already posted. We hope to get diversity both of
opinion and geography, and so far we have responses from friends in
India, England, Australia, etc.
