Hot off the press! (Almost!)
What better way to come back from vacation than to announce the publication of this wonderful book?
The third and final volume of homilies and reflections, one for each liturgical year (or cycle), by a group of preachers (ordained and lay, from several denominations) who call themselves the Homilists for the Homeless, is printing right now. I am pleased to have been part of this project for all three years alongside such heavy hitters as Richard Rohr, Jim Martin, Rob Bell, and this year Martha Sterne, one of my heroes and mentors (and who baptized my children).
Click here to go to the publisher's website where you can preorder the book (and/or the other two books in the series - you can get a boxed set of all three), which we hope will be shipping within two weeks, just in time for the beginning of a new church year November 30th. Not only are they a great resource for preachers, but also the weekly reflections tied to the lectionary make for thought provoking devotional reading for anyone.
Remember, all proceeds from these books go to several charities that work to address both the needs of homeless people and the underlying causes of homelessness in our country. Also, we are proud that both of the previous books have won awards from the Catholic Press.
Thanks for your support!
