Since we’re in the thicket of Lent, you may have something to contribute to our on-going collection Who’s Risen from the Dead, Anyway? for Lent/HolyWeek/Easter and to our most widely-read annual resource, Whose Birthday Is It, Anyway? for Advent/Christmas/Epiphany. Though it’s no longer printed on paper, “WHOSE Birthday?” is published online since 2012.

Submission Guidelines

All past editions are available on the SLW! site. Thanks to Creative Commons licensing, individuals and congregations can reprint articles without further permission. The articles are carefully indexed —  ADVENT/CHRISTMAS | LENT/EASTER.

They’re 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 and Easter.
  • PERSONAL EXPERIENCES (especially intergenerational ones) related to simplifying Christmas and Easter and finding meaning and happiness in relationships instead of stuff.
  • FAMILY ACTIVITIES, rituals or worshipful ceremonies for Advent/ Christmas/Epiphany and Lent/HolyWeek/Easter.

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

Read WHOSE Birthday? in the archives | WHO’s Risen? Some also come in AUDIO formats.

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.

Thanks!
