Grace Sticks To Release November 1—Author Proceeds Will Support The Malala Fund

130912132101-malala-yousafzai-birmingham-amanpour-story-topThe day is almost here. My book Grace Sticks will release Nov. 1—and I feel like I’m having another baby, only without all the gore.

When you buy a copy, you’ll also be supporting the work of Malala Yousafzai, the 16-year-old Pakistani advocate for girls’ education who was shot in the head by the Taliban in 2012. Malala is now back in school and has started a non-profit organization to support the education of girls in places where girls seeking an education for themselves face cultures of violence and intimidation.

With the first 1,000 copies of Grace Sticks, every penny of the author proceeds will go towards the Malala Fund.

Consider buying a few copies as Christmas presents or for your next book club project. With discussion questions at the end of each chapter, Grace Sticks is also meant for use by Bible studies, book groups and other groups (both church and non-church). Thank you in advance for your support.

Advent and Emptiness, Via Louis CK and the Prophet Isaiah
I've been making my way through the book of Isaiah. This morning's reading was from chapter 6, where the prophet Isaiah receives his call to go to the people of Israel and proclaim God's judgment of a people who have wandered away from God's purposes for them. Isaiah asks how long God's people will

Advent Resurrection
It may seem strange to pair Advent with resurrection. Usually resurrection comes more naturally at Easter. But at heart the labor pangs of all creation giving birth to the Christ child are a longing for a new start. Advent is a longing to be born again. Neuroscience now teaches that every minu
