Grief Resources

5 Aug

Before we can pray or forgive or even listen, we need to be at peace with ourselves. Grief Journal is one woman’s story of coming through the loss of a young husband and miraculously finding herself. “I had a good marriage and a happy life,” Linda Andreozzi writes. “We had fun. I also drank a lot, worked too much, watched TV every day, and had no spiritual life. The loss of everything I knew and held dear gave me two things that can never be taken from me: my sobriety and my companionship with God. I will never be alone in that same black hole where I whispered by first real prayer: ‘Help!'”

You can order your copy of Grief Journal online at goodgroundpress.com or by calling Good Ground Press at 800-232-5533. Only $15.95 per copy!

Look Ahead to a Fall Bible Study

25 Jul

You’ve been enjoying Luke’s Gospel this summer. The good news is we continue reading from Luke all the way to Advent. Why not start a group that can dead and study Luke together? It will make Sunday Eucharist much more meaningful and deepen your relationships with your fellow Bible students.

Sister Joan’s book on Luke is short (nine chapters), easy to use, and inexpensive. Go to goodgroundpress.com to read sample chapters. Then find a few others who want to make Luke’s story about a compassionate and inclusive Jesus more alive in their lives.

1-9 copies, $10 each; 10-99, $8; 100 or more, $7.

You can order online or call us at 800-232-5533.

 

Important Feast Days Coming Up!

16 Jul

Two feast days of Gospel women are coming up in the next weeks.

July 22 is the feast day of Mary Magdalene, first witness to Jesus’ resurrection. July 29 is the day that honors Martha of Bethany, sister of Mary and Lazarus. These women are pictured for you in Holy Women of Luke’s Gospel.

Mary Magdalene is first witness to Jesus’ resurrection in all four Gospels. She was among the women from Galilee who follow Jesus and provide for him out of their resources. From early Christianity she has been called “the apostle to the apostle”, the bringer of good news to them and to us all. Click here to pray with Mary for resurrection in your own life.

 

Martha of Bethany and her sister Mary welcomed Jesus into their home. Most women remember Martha for the scolding she got from Jesus. “Martha, Martha, you are busy about many things, but your sister Mary has chosen the better part.” To read her story and an up-to-date interpretation, click here. Pray with Martha to resist the social pressures in your own life.

You will need a copy of Holy Women in Luke’s Gospel to meet and pray with the 14 other women he features. Go to goodgroundpress.com to order or call 800-232-5533.

Every Sunday Belongs To Luke

11 Jun

Beginning next week, every Sunday Gospel until Advent is from the Gospel of Luke. For 23 consecutive Sundays we hear Luke’s stories and parables of forgiveness and healing. We experience Jesus standing up for the poor and forgotten, searching for the lost sheep, lost coin, lost souls.

 These powerful stories that feed our faith deserve to have more than a cursory hearing. Sister Joan’s new book, Luke’s Gospel: Written for Us, invites individuals and small groups to spend more time with Luke. Click here to read the Introduction and a sample chapter. Imagine sharing the questions in each chapter with friends or family. Call Lacy at 800-232-5533 to place your order, or visit goodgroundpress.com to order online.
