Submissions for Whose Birthday? 2013

Posted on: September 25, 2013


You’re welcome to contribute to our most widely-read resource, “Whose Birthday Is It, Anyway?” for Advent/Christmas. Though it’s no longer printed on paper, it is published online since 2012.

All 25 editions are still available on the SLW! site. Because of Creative Commons licensing, individuals and congregations can reprint articles without further permission. The articles are carefully indexed.

The current edition will be updated as new material arrives, so send ideas and items anytime. Prepare something now while it’s really on your mind. An item may be new or not, original or not. (If it’s by someone else, include a complete description of the source.) We prefer items of 250 words or fewer (one page double-spaced). We reserve the right to edit.

  • ART (line drawing, photo) that depicts the tension between faith and culture, especially at Christmas.
  • PERSONAL EXPERIENCES (especially intergenerational ones) related to simplifying Christmas or finding meaning and happiness in relationships instead of stuff.
  • FAMILY ACTIVITIES, rituals or worshipful ceremonies for Advent, Christmas or Epiphany.

We reach many through our website, blogs and other media. Sorry, we cannot pay for any submissions.

Read past editions in the archives.

Please send your submissions by email to SimpleLivingWorks AT yahoo DOT com. If you need to send something by US mail, email us and we’ll send you a mailing address.
