Surprise! Grace Sticks Now Available for Purchase on Amazon

GraceStickscoverThis is one of those rare moments when I’m flooding the blogosphere with two posts in one day and hoping you’ll forgive me….because yesterday publicist Caitlin McKenzie of Cascade—a shout-out to Caitlin, editor Rodney Clapp, and the wonderful people of Wipf & Stock—radioed in (kidding) with the news that Grace Sticks (Cascade) is actually up on Amazon here as of yesterday and available for purchase ($17.99)!

Or, you can buy discounted copies on the Wipf & Stock website here ($15).

A reminder: all author proceeds for the first 1,000 copies sold will go in entirety to support the Malala Fund. After being shot in the head by the Taliban, 16-year-old Malala Yousafzai has only redoubled her efforts to support the education of girls in cultures where girls who want to learn face violence and oppression. I hope you’ll consider buying a copy or two and supporting Malala’s cause.

As I say in the book’s dedication, this book is for anyone anywhere who has ever heard a version of The Way, The Truth and The Life that made them feel more lost, swindled or less alive—and who made for the open road.

I hope you enjoy it—and, will you let me know what you think?

Sex. Money. Power. Corruption. Controversy. Scandal. Since the 1980's Catholic News Service reporter John Thavis has been covering all of it and more—not from a post in Las Vegas or the nation's Capitol but from (of all places) the Vatican. Which may explain why Thavis prefaces his New York

Lent Madness
In an effort to infuse this often somber season of Lent with a little humor and motivational pizzazz, one Episcopalian priest in Massachusetts has invented "Lent Madness." Four years ago Rev. Tim Schenck started the initiative, which pits some 32 saints in a basketball-type bracket squaring off as r

Wasn't April Fool's Day Last Week?—World Vision, Evangelicals and Gays
April Fool's Day seems a fitting day to review what happened last week, when, within just two days of announcing its decision to hire gays in recognized same-sex marriages, World Vision reversed its decision. An official statement from World Vision president Richard Stearns communicated "heartbreak"

"Wild Geese" by Mary Oliver
Each week in hospice a team of doctors, nurses, chaplains and social workers meets to discuss every patient in their care. Usually the meeting starts with a few moments of silence remembering those who have died in the preceding days, followed by a short meditation from the chaplain. Yesterday a col
