I did some writing last summer, though not for school.

One piece that I wrote over the summer is getting published in a book this spring! Its a short essay I wrote that is, essentially, a theological reflection on the work I used to do in emergency shelters in BC. It will be published in the book There’s a Woman in the Pulpit: Christian Clergywomen Share Their Hard Days, Holy Moments, and the Healing Power of Humor which is set to come out mid April (though the amazon page says mid-May).

The book has come out of a community of women who’s wisdom I have appreciated, the Rev Gal Blog Pals. I’m looking forward to hopefully meeting some of them as we get closer to publication. I’m also really looking forward to reading everyone’s essays in the book!

You can see more about it on the Publisher’s page (Skylight Paths Publishing), or on Amazon.

I’ll keep you posted as more information becomes available about its publication date and so on.

    • Thanks Cheryl! I’m not allowed to post it here till the book has been out awhile (publishing agreement), but when I can I will!

  1. Hi Gillian…congratulations from me, too, though we do not know each other that well. I am Blanca, Nancy’s friend. I feel as though I know you, though. I want to buy the book when it comes out. I would love, love to read it. All the best to you.
