I am sleeping on the plane tonight! Wrapped in Grace is being printed in Grand Rapids, Michigan, my hometown, and the books are scheduled to be ready for pick up on Tuesday. If I take the red-eye, I will arrive in GR Tuesday morning and be at the printer when the books are ready. Why am I traveling from my home in Tempe, Arizona to pick the books up instead of just having them shipped here? Well, a few reasons:
- The first Sunday of Advent is November 29th and I really want to get a book in your hands before then. If I can ship to you from Grand Rapids this week, instead of waiting for books to arrive here in AZ just to put them back in the mail, you will get a book a lot faster.
- A bunch of the books are actually staying in Grand Rapids for family and friends, I would love to give those out in person.
- If you are in the West Michigan area and would like to get a book while I am there, please join me for a cup of hot chocolate and to get your copy of Wrapped in Grace:
Friday, November 20
4:00 – 7:30 PM
151 Lakeside Dr
Grand Rapids, Mi 49506
- Plus, my family is in West Michigan and it is always nice to see them.
Wrapped in Grace is a retelling of the Christmas story from a little bit of a new perspective, with daily readings and space to journal. It is designed to be read during the four weeks leading up to Christmas beginning on the 4th Sunday before Christmas. (This year, Advent begins on November 29th). I will post video readings here throughout the Advent season, and there will be space to connect and respond to the readings here if you would like to.
Thanks for joining me as we celebrate the season of Jesus’ birth!
