Back in April I told you about a new project that was in the works. As of today, we had not heard any concrete information about whether or not our propsal will be accepted. You can re-read the post here.
Well, on June 21, my project load doubled. A friend of mine (Ray, check out his blog here) and I were at High School camp last year when we began to have a discussion about Christianity and society. Even though we are only removed from High School by only 10-11 years, the world is completely different- the understanding of what it means to be Christian has changed, worship styles have changed and the way we encounter the Divine has changed. Sadly, the perception of Christianity has not changed. This made us ask, “why would anyone want to be a Christian when it seems so lame?” and thus the idea was born.
So we contacted Chalice Press (our denominational publishing house) with our idea and they asked us to write a proposal for a book on this topic. We are both in transitions in our lives but I believe we will get this completed soon.
Stay tuned for more updated from both projects! Below is a very nice tweet from Ray’s wife about our project.
So proud of @RayMillerIV & @RevEvanDolive! The publishing company said they are "very interested" in their book proposal! #andtheworkbegins—
