Where I’ve been….

I have been trying to keep up with my blog, letting you know when I’ve been in other places. Unfortunately, I let it slip a bit in the last few weeks.

My dad has been in critical condition for a few months now. He’s faced a couple of life-threatening surgeries, and made it through. Now, his kidneys have begun the process of shutting down. So, I’ve traveled home to Florida the last couple of weekends. Since I moved away, I always enjoy the fact that I’m not known as “Linda Howard’s daughter” any longer. But I have to say, I wish I was closer during this process. I feel like I could be doing so much more if I were there…

Anyways, let me link some of the places I’ve been (in no particular order).

On God Complex Radio, I interviewed Tony Jones on his book The Teaching of the Twelve. Landon Whitsitt interviewed Jonathan Brink.

And speaking of Landon, I just finished the foreword for his book, Open Source Church, which should be coming out next month (I don’t have a link for it yet, but I will soon).

I’ve been over at Duke’s Call and Response leadership blog, talking about Rob Bell and Tall Steeples.

I got back from an amazing week with the RevGalBlogPals’ Big Event. We went on a cruise, my friend. A cruise to Mexico. They hosted a chat about Reframing Hope here. And, coming up this week, Martha Spong will be on GCR.

Also, Alban just sent out a notice that Reframing Hope and Tribal Church are on sale this week. They are celebrating the fact that the book was named to the Academy of Parish Clergy’s top ten list.

With my dad’s situation, I’m not sure what the next couple of weeks will look like, but I’ll try to be around as much as possible. And, if you think about it, I would appreciate your prayers for my family. Thanks…
