SLW! Three-Fold Sharing Plan: A-C-E, 2014

Posted on: October 29, 2014

3-A524The SLW! plan to share resources this Advent-Christmas-Epiphany — or A-C-E — is multi-faceted.

1. The WHOSE Birthday? four-part podcast series includes reflections and activities by Daniel Berrigan, William Sloane Coffin, Meg Cox, Betsy Taylor and many more. Episodes 32-35 will be released in iTunes and Stitcher Nov. 1 & 15; Dec. 1 & 15. Or listen to them at your leisure on the SLW! site.

2. The new online edition of Whose Birthday Is It, Anyway? #26 is almost ready. You still have time to contribute a Biblical Reflection or Family Activity .

3. Once or twice a week we’ll highlight a series of reflections from a past edition in this blog, as we did in 2013. The first set appears below. (To find the 2013 offerings, skim through Nov. and Dec. in the Archives in the right column of this blog.)

Enjoy them now. Share them later with your family or congregation through your website, newsletter, study group. . . .
