64 Parishes Publication Party

I could not be more delighted: next month, 64 Parishes magazine will be hosting a publication party to celebrate the release of its spring issue, and I’ll be joining editor Erin Greenwald for a public conversation about an article in that issue exploring the history of the St Joe Brick Works in Pearl River, LA. Best of all, brickmaker Chris Schneider of the Schneider family will be joining us for the conversation as well, and bringing historic artifacts from the brickyard for display.

The party is free and open to the public, from 6-8pm on Thursday, March 9, at the Maritime Museum Louisiana in Madisonville, LA. More info on the event Facebook page — I’ve been told to come hungry (and thirsty)!

Crime Capsule 50th episode

I’m delighted to report that with the airing of our interview with Bill Bleyer, Crime Capsule has reached its 50th episode — a wonderful milestone we celebrated with our first-ever book giveaway on-air. The last 18 months have been an amazing journey, and I couldn’t be more grateful Arcadia, Evergreen, and the Crime Capsule team for getting us this far. Part 1 of the interview can be found here, with even more episodes — and hopefully another 50 — to follow.

Liturgy Collective

byFaith magazine has a report on the 2022 Liturgy Collective conference held this past October in Nashville. For anyone interested in issues of contemporary worship services — not just within one denomination, but across many — I can absolutely recommend this gathering as a place to ask questions, meet others, and dive deeper into ancient traditions. Grateful to the organizers for their hospitality and to the editors of byFaith for the invitation to write this up.
