It's Been a Good Week...So Far

~~How's this for a good week? On Sunday night I gave the long awaited talk at church and sold eight more books and on Monday night I was interviewed for a TV show. Tuesday I got to see the DVD of the show and WOW! It's good!
~~The talk Sunday night was titled "Devotional Worship" and related my ideas for active reading of scripture. It is the process that led to An Easter Walk. Since my active reading takes the form of writing, the rest, as they say, is history. I also have learned the connection of devotion and worship. We usually think that the two words have very different meanings--one is private and the other a group activity--but actually, the two words are defined by each other. So, my talk revolved around both and how to create active, productive quiet time. The group who heard it was very complementary. When I asked John if he thought the program went well, he said, "Of course!" like he couldn't imagine me thinking otherwise. ; ) My mother agreed.
~~The interview was for the program, "Reach Out and Touch" that is produced by my friends, Faye and Gene Agan. Their program is part of the line up on the Unity Broadcasting Network. UBN is based in Boonesville, Mississippi and has several affiliates in Tennessee, Alabama, Mississippi, and Missouri. Along with their standard broadcast, UBN is an online entity as well. My interview will air online and on the network on Tuesday March 30 at 2 PM. Check out on that date if you have a chance. Unfortunately, the program is not archived, but the Agans kindly gave me a DVD of the finished product. If I say so myself, it's good. John agrees. I also have permission to copy the DVD for sell at book signings if I wish. Faye and Gene are good friends, don't you think? By the way, we plan to do other programs in the future. Can Christmas be far away? Not if I get A Christmas Walk is ready in time. ; )
~~So it's Wednesday and I'm waiting. Just what other good things can happen this week? Your guess is as good as mine. ; )
