First, myÂ second book,
Let God: The Transforming Wisdom of Francois Fenelon
is hitting the shelves. I am excited about this book because it is a collection of letters written by
Fenelon (a French bishop in the 1600â€™s) to friends, letters where he was answering their questions and offering them spiritual guidance for their life-journey. These letters connected with my own desire for wiser, elder, spiritual guides, and so I modernized them, wrote introductions to help us hear Fenelonâ€™s wisdom in response to the sorts of questions we might ask today, and wrote an opening chapter encouraging us to recognize our need for spiritual guides in our life. For a limited time, the publisher is offer a 30% discount to my friends here on the blog (that’s you).
Second, I recentlyÂ recorded an audio conversation with my friend, Nathan Elmore. Nathan guided our conversation toward reflections on faith, life, and my first two books. I’d love for you to download it and take a listen. (it’s the first file on the page) As an added bonus, one of my all-time favorite indie artists, Tom Conlon, is allowing me to release two free singles (this would be the small gift) with this interview. Enjoy! If you have never heard Tom, I am eager to introduce you to him.
Last, my website has been completely revamped, jump over and take a test drive. On that note, I have to say a very big thank you to twoÂ guysÂ who, as an act of friendship,Â made my website their personal project: Andy Heck, one mean designer and aÂ hardcore drummerÂ (his blog title captures him perfectly: tattoos_and_underoos) and Austin Grigg, a friend who is a technical wizard and whose heart is as honest as his poetry. Thanks, guys!Â
Thanks for letting me share alot of new stuff happening with me right now.
