Guest Post & Review & Book Giveaway

11.26.13It is an honor to write anything and have someone else read it. I suppose it is a bit presumptuous of me to write here and think that anyone would want to come and read it. But it’s just become an old habit after doing it for so many years. And there are some committed readers who stop by to shout out some encouragements every once in a while. Thanks for that.

However, it is a great honor to be asked to write something for someone else, and I have enjoyed having a few of my writings published elsewhere recently.

Felicia Ellis asked me to write a post about gratitude for her blog, Felicia’s Red Door Life. I think you would enjoy subscribing to her blog and keeping up with it. My post is about something for which I am grateful, and I invite you to click HERE to read and respond there. Felicia and her family attend our church and we have enjoyed getting to know them! Thank you Felicia!

I was also asked to read four recently released books on the subject of grief and review them for The Christian Chronicle. My review of these four books can be read HERE. All four of the books were excellent and it was a privilege to read them and to be moved by each of them.

Every member of the Churches of Christ should receive the Christian Chronicle in their home. The subscription is free, and the content is always excellent.

Last week I reviewed a book by Wayne Dunaway HERE. Heaven, Where Many are Few is a very good book about heaven. I encourage you to read my review and then purchase your own copy. I offered to give away two of those books. I’m surprised only seven people entered! I’ll be sending books out to Lacey Mauk and Cecil May III soon. Congratulations! Enjoy them!

I hope that all of you have a great Thanksgiving holiday … however that looks for you. For us, it is a gathering with Maggy’s family in the Mississippi Delta.

Thanks for reading. Really.

John
