Jessica and I tried for HOURS to make a video for you all to watch, and our *plan* was to inform you of the details for our new book club.
That plan failed miserably.
SO, here's the scoop:
The name of the book club is Bloom and the tag is Read. Discuss. Grow.
Do you love it as much as we do? We think that it has so many cool interpretations. Our prayer is that it will become a vibrant community of believers who can challenge each other and encourage one another in our walks. Our common bond will be the books that we read - and we think Crazy Love is the perfect way to start.
We will start discussing Crazy Love on Sept. 13th...we have set up a website (which was designed by the amazing Danielle at The Design Girl), as well as a ning site to keep everyone on the same page.
Pun completely unintended.
Don't be intimidated by the ning site. It is a free social network that will allow us to have live chats, post questions/thoughts/recipes/whatever on the discussion boards and engage in the Bloom community. Be sure you upload a picture so we can see each of you! There isn't much there now, but there will be. Just be patient with us.
Each week we will do a blog post about the chapter assigned from the previous week (ie: on Sept. 13 we will blog about the intro and chapter 1). Then that Wednesday, guest bloggers will write a post about the the chapter/topic of discussion/something relevant. We believe this will be a great way to get different opinions and encourage conversation. We are really excited about the contributers who are on-board-we have pastors, writers, all kinds of fun people.
So, in lieu of an informative video, have a laugh with (at) us, and we'll see you on the 13th.
Angie and Jessica
