SLW! eNews #38 – new “WHOSE Birthday?” online and podcast

Posted on: November 1, 2014


SLW! shares resources this Advent-Christmas-Epiphany in many ways.

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 from edition #18. Episodes 32-35 will be released in iTunes and Stitcher Nov. 1 & 15; Dec. 1 & 15. Or you listen to any/all of them at your leisure on the SLW! site.

2. The new online edition of Whose Birthday Is It, Anyway? #26 is ready. You can still 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, “Make Ready the Way of the Lord…” by Tom Hall, also includes Services and Activities by Julie Peeples and Paul Davis. All three are ordained ministers and have been affiliated with Habitat for Humanity. (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. . . .

All three offerings — text, podcast, new, past — are different content. Also see “What’s Now,” “What’s Coming” and “What’s Happened” below.
