If this were about selling books and nothing more, I would feel crass for blatant promotion of my work. But this is about far more than selling books. It is a mission given by God to which I lovingly invite you. I believe this is God’s work, not mine. It is about reaching out to find family we never knew we had, loving them as Jesus loves us, and attracting new family members to the fold who see the real church for the first time.
And we cannot be obedient to the commands we have been given for perfect unity without spreading the word.
So now it is time for you to participate, if these blogs have touched anything in your heart. Maybe you’ll take a few minutes and go back over the archives and find a favorite song or story we have presented, each of which leads to Streamside but does not present the essentials of it so that the book will be new and fresh for you.
Soon, and for a period of 60 to 90 days, I will be able to provide the book to you personally under what is called “pre-release.” This is the period when distribution is being set up and you can’t yet order from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, etc. That will come at the end of this period, which will be after the holiday season.
In the interim, we will have pre-release events where I come to your location, we have a little party, and I sign books for your guests. This should occur in November, just right for your gift lists.
Will you consider hosting such an event for your friends?
God has planted his truth in us and I have tried to obediently fertilize and water.
Waiting to see what sprouts up is one of the great thrills of life.
It is up to you now.
Your responses will be kept private, of course, unless you choose to shout out to the world that you believe in unity.
