Introducing Book #4

We are so excited to introduce the fall book selection for Bloom.

You can find Sabbath: Finding Rest, Renewal, and Delight in Our Busy Lives on Amazon. As we mentioned in the video, your purchases from Amazon will help fund the shipping expenses for books to those not able to purchase a copy.

Also, remember that quantities may be limited, so order soon! You should also be able to find the book at local book stores, used book stores, and at the library.

Update: The publisher has informed us that if they sell out, they can print more in a matter of days. HOORAY! :)

We will post a video discussing one section of the book each Sunday starting on October 17. That should give you enough time to get the book and read the first section.
The schedule is as follows:
October 17: Rest
October 24: Rhythm
October 31: Time
November 7: Happiness
November 14: Wisdom
November 21: Consecration and A Sabbath Day

We are excited to have started a BlogFrog community so that we can easily get to know one another and discuss the book. Just click here to join!

Please also "like" The Bloom Book Club on Facebook so you are alerted when we post new content on this blog.

Books for Those in Need
Part of the ministry of Bloom is to provide books to people who are unable to purchase one for themselves. We do this in two ways:
  1. Bantam Books donated 100 copies of Sabbath for us to give to people in need (Thank you Bantam)
  2. Other Bloom participants volunteer to buy an extra book and send one (or two or 10!) to others
Tomorrow (Monday) we will post a form for people to fill out IF YOU CAN SEND A BOOK TO SOMEONE IN NEED. This form will be up for two days. Update: Click here to fill out the form.

On Wednesday, we will post a form for people to fill out IF YOU CAN'T AFFORD A BOOK. This will be up until all books available are requested. We will then send donors the addresses of the people who need books.

We are soooooo excited to read Sabbath together. It has been a life changing book for us both.

Be sure to check in next Sunday because we will have a special post up from Sabbath author, Wayne Muller!

Now go buy Sabbath!
