I want to point you to an article that was written about a book that I helped to edit. And before I give you the link, let me tell you, it's more than just a book.
Word-Filled Women's Ministry: Loving and Serving the Church is the first book in a whole line of books that is the result of the "women's initiative" publishing partnership between TGC and Crossway. In my role I get to work with Kathleen Nielson in curating books written by women for the church to be published through this partnership. It just so happened that this first book out the gate is co-edited by both Kathleen and I, and we've also contributed some chapters.
And it's more than a book. It represents a prayerfully ambitious endeavour to strengthen your local church wherever you may be. At every level of involvement from the contributors on up, we're all committed to seeing God's Word lived out and loved in our ministries among women. From where I sit here in a local church that is made up of over 70 different nationalities, it is plain as day that what we all need to live by is timeless truth and not our various cultural quirks! That's what the book is all about, and that's what the regional training events are all about. Yes, you read that correctly. Regional training events!
Without further ado, here is the aforementioned article on the forthcoming book and regional trainings.
A few quick instructions... First, read the article and watch the video. Next, laugh at the goofy still shot of me that the video player randomly chose. Then, click on the picture of the book to view the list of contributors. Last, make a note of the contact details at the bottom of the article. Perhaps you could help bring a regional training event to your local church?
