Hi! We are planning to do an alternative Christmas workshop at our church next month and would like to have copies of “Whose Birthday Is it, Anyway? #27” for participants. Please let me know when these will be available and how we can obtain them.

Thanks so much. Barbara

Greetings, Barbara,

Glad to hear from you. “Whose Birthday?” 2010 was the last edition distributed on paper. Since then I have published it on the internet. The 2015 ed. is scheduled to be on our website in Sept. When it’s ready, I’ll announce it in the Simple Living Works! weekly blog and monthly eNews.

You’re welcome to assemble and copy a version that meets your local needs. All of our resources and service are now free of charge.

Keep in touch.

Peace, Gerald

You’re welcome to contribute to our most widely-read resource, “Whose Birthday Is It, Anyway?” #27 for Advent/Christmas. Though it’s no longer printed on paper, it is published online since 2012.

All past editions are still available on the SLW! site. 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, podcast and other media. Sorry, we cannot pay for any submissions. All of our original resources are free of charge.

Read past editions in the archives.

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

Thanks!
