I have created bio pages and posted them here in Word format. The little pictures will be in black and white, so you have to use your imagination. Please, please, please send me additions or corrections.
As for Guidelines -- I'm open for any and all suggestions.
Here's my first thoughts:
How about this (following Reverendmother's form)
Similar to Guidposts or Upper Room
Start with your text or a snippet of your text.
Then a reflection -- not just exegesis, but if you want some exegesis that's ok, but more of a personal type story or practice would be easier for most people to relate to -- or what do you all think?
And then finish with short little prayer.
the one complaint I got last year with the booklet that I gave out was that the reflections were too short -- most ran 300 to 500 words and people wanted a little more. And personally, I think that some of them were a little short. Can we shoot for 600 to 1200 words? That's not terribly long. About 2 pages tops -- including the scripture and prayer.
I'm with Reverend Mother on the inclusive language thing -- yet I know some people don't know what inclusive language really is, so I wouldn't stress too much if you don't know what that is.
Editing -- I was going to very gently edit, but would appreciate some help with this -- I know we have at least 2 ex-English teachers or professors among us. Perhaps we could us their skills?
And a suggestion for a graphic element for each devotional would be nice....
