Sunday Afternoon Music

I am off at knitting camp with my mom and niece, but I wish you all a blessed and peaceful Sunday afternoon! Perhaps you will enjoy this lovely music as part of your day.

The sound of Libera has become familiar to millions worldwide following the group's successful recordings and appearances on TV and radio, stage and film.

Libera is a real 'boy band' whose young members have become known for their unique musical style in concert and on their atmospheric albums, which have topped classical and mainstream charts across the world.



Applaud Applaud!! Beautiful Music....

(Pssssssssssst..... Mary Beth is on a knitting retreat, so I have added a brief announcement to her posting).

Grabbing conductor's baton to give a tap tap tap --- attention please!

In three weeks we will be discussing this book:

Have you read it yet? If not, you have time. It's a collection of short stories on Lamott's life experiences and faith. Grace (Eventually): Thoughts on Faith. It will be led by RevAbi on Monday, August 27. If you click on the link we provide, you can read reviews and synopses from Amazon. Purchasing helps out RevGals by giving a percentage of the sale. Or, you can check it out from your local library!

Let's supposin' that you want to get September's book too. Might as well since you are getting August's and these two will get you free shipping. Good Fences: The Boundaries of Hospitality, by Caroline Westerhoff will be led by Songbird on September 24. (If you want to read an excerpt, Amazon has a feature on the page of the book to read some of the book to get an idea if you like it.)

I, for one, have read Lamott's book. It was my first one, however, I was familiar with her from the fact that several of you have mentioned her on your blogs. I'm glad I read her book, and as many of you have mentioned her short prayers "Please" and Thank you", Amen.

How many of you are reading Lamott's book now? I know I look forward to the discussion coming up. Won't you join us?

Thank you Mary Beth, for providing beauitful music for Sunday afternoon.


  1. Waaah...still trying to catch up with the last two. 8^P

  2. Hey, I just came back from RevGalStorePals where I bought both the Lamott and Westerhoff books in a timely manner, I trust. Thanks for the Sunday Music, MaryBeth!

  3. waaah the Anne Lamont is so new it's only in hardback and in europe that makes it prohibitively expensive.

    Thanks for announcing the books early though ... it's great... and I look forward to the lively discussions. The one of Velvet Elvis was wonderfully stimulating and helped me to think outside the box a bit more.

  4. I've been reading Lamott's book off and on. Since it's essays, it's easy to pick up and put down.

  5. I read the Lamott book a few months ago, and will review it again before the discussion. It actually was my least favorite of her books of essays, but I will strive to come up with a cogent reason for saying so. Don't have Westerhoff, but I have finished Animal,Vegetable, Miracle (book for October) and it was great.

  6. I just finished the book last week. I love Anne Lamott!

    Although (and we can discuss this in a few weeks), I did like Travelling Mercies much better. Grace Eventually seems much more polished.

  7. I've read the Lamott and loved it, especially the story about her son. Oh, I needed to hear that.

    I have ordered the Westerhoff and hope to have it read in time! :)

  8. Oh my Gosh, how very lovely. I had not heard of them so thanks for sharing them with us.

    Wow, I am going to play it again.
