RevGalBookPals: Reframing Hope offers from Alban

As many of you know, ring member Carol Howard Merritt will be our presenter for Big Event 4.0. Her new book, Reframing Hope: Vital Ministry in a New Generation, is about to be published, and Alban Institute has shared some ways to learn more about the book and even get a free copy! 

Hope may look different to a 25-year-old web designer than it does to a 60-year-old deacon. But it is hope nonetheless.

In Reframing Hope, Carol Howard Merritt takes a look at what ministry in, with, and by a new generation might look like. She understands that we are not creating from nothing the vital ministry of the next generation. Instead, we are working through what we have, sorting out the best parts, acknowledging and healing from the worst, and reframing it all.

Special Pre-Publication Price: $11.90 + shipping – valid until August 29th.

1   Get the First Chapter of Reframing Hope FREE. Read it, and we know you'll have to buy the book.2   Register for a free webinar on August 26th. Pick her brain, read the first chapter and share your thoughts.
3   Want to know what Carol thinks? Watch her talk about it and who it’s meant to help in this short video.4   Are you an avid blogger? Get the whole book FOR FREE if you want to write a review of it.


  1. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Not only for this announcement, but for being such a supportive community for years.... You are amazing.

  2. I've sent an email offering to read and write a review - which I'd love to do.

  3. Me too, can't wait to read it!
    Congrats, Carol!

  4. Ordered my copy and can't wait to get it! Also looking forward to the webinar.

    I had the privilege of meeting Carol at Church Unbound a couple of weeks ago and can't wait for those of you who haven't met her to get to know her at the BE 4.0

  5. Who can turn down the chance for a free book? Especially one you were already planning to buy!

    Just sent my e-mail offering to do a review

  6. I pre-ordered my book ages ago and am breaking my neck looking for it. And looking forward to the webinar tomorrow...a little lunchtime indulgence as I do not work for a church. Grateful for a door I can close, computer & phone to use, to participate.

    my word verification is "hotsin" which I find very amusing!
