Happy Holidays! Scroll down to find all of our popular holiday stories to light up December’s final days!
THEN, plan to wake up each day in January with an inspiring story about a faithful hero who helped bring peace to our world! And, join in our online discussion about the importance of such heroes.
In 2008, we’re EXPANDING with more recommendations of great spiritual books and films, interviews with fascinating people and, of course, our popular quizzes that readers love to pass around. But, we’re also hosting major spiritual events throughout the year!
In January, we’re linking with a range of groups to present: Interfaith Heroes Month! From Jan 1-31, we’re opening a new area in our online home: www.interfaithheroes.info Each day, you’ll find an uplifting story of a different international hero, including the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. All 31 crossed religious boundaries to strengthen communities.
PLUS, we’re publishing a companion book with all 31 stories and loads of extras you’ll find only in the book: study guides and other supplements to help you meet neighbors of other faiths.
YOU have an essential role to play. This is an annual observance and we want you or your group, class or congregation to nominate the next list of heroes who’ll be featured in 2009.
PLUS, plan ahead to enjoy all of our seasonal themes in 2008! Starting with Lent on February 6 — and including major Christian, Jewish and Muslim seasons in 2008 — you can “read along” with us each day. On February 6 (and extending through the Orthodox-Christian season), “Our Lent” debuts with free online stories each day. The “Our Lent” devotional book, available on Amazon in coming weeks, is perfect for individuals, groups and congregations.
In this holiday season, once again — YOU have a major role to play. Help us list major events related to these holidays in your part of the world — and join in our online conversations with a rich array of voices.
FINALLY, even as we branch out into these new seasonal pages — our regular coverage of great new books, films and important new spiritual voices continues at ReadTheSpirit.
You won’t want to miss our first major “Conversation With” in 2008, featuring David Crumm talking with best-selling author Edward Beck. His timely new book is a great way to start this new year — a day-by-day reflection on spiritually revitalizing your life, linking ancient spiritual reflections with our modern concerns, one step at a time!
