A light blazes in the darkness

Found this on Real Live Preacher.

A light blazes in the darkness coverAn advent devotional, written by a group of bloggers, who are also ministers. A devotional by the blogosphere, for the blogosphere, which can be downloaded for only £1.45 if you don’t want to pay to have the dead tree edition shipped to you from the States. A devotional which is published by Lulu, which gives anyone the opportunity to publish in many different media, without having to sign away their life on a big business contract. A devotional without a course book or series of group meetings to go with it. A devotional with a forward by Real Live Preacher. That’s my kind of devotional.

The blurb from the Lulu site about the book –

A Light Blazes in the Darkness: Advent Devotionals from an Intentional Online Community

This advent devotional book comes from an unusual source — a group of women who keep Web Logs — discerning women, clergywomen and their friends who call themselves the RevGalBlogPals webring (http://revgalblogpals.blogspot.com). The RevGalBlogPals webring is a circle of friends who span across denominations and countries to form an intentional community. We laugh, pray and grow together as clergy, as Christians and as women. These are our reflections on the season of Advent and are based loosely on Year B of the Revised Common Lectionary. The proceeds for this book will go to hurricane relief efforts along the US gulf coast.
“A circle of friends who span across denominations and countries to form an intentional community” – a sentence which says more about what the blogosphere is really about than all the arguments and articles about flame blogs and hate blogs will ever do.

Someone has been kind enough to grab me a copy of A light in the darkness as a download and I’m really looking forward to using it. To get your copy, click here.
