Jetlag and Anne Graham Lotz

I'm still jetlagged. I take forever to get over it. I did not even realize it was Friday: hence, no Bliss Notes. I'm giving myself the gift of an easy few days to recover.

Yesterday, I had the pleasure of hearing Anne Graham Lotz speak at Crossroads. Lotz, who is Billy Graham's daughter and runs AnGel Ministries, has written a new book, Wounded by God's People, about those who have been hurt by the church and fellow Christians. I had my own experience with this and am glad that someone with such an impressive pedigree is taking on this topic. I was lucky enough to receive an advance copy of the book and I cannot wait to dive in.

While I was at the lunch, I heard some good news on the Full Circle front. They are back on the air in re-runs on CTS. There is no other talk show in Canada for Christian women and I wish they'd bring this show back. Hopefully the reruns will be popular and they will resume taping. This show was a real lifeline for me at a dark point in my life and I'm privileged to have had an opportunity over the past year to get to know the hosts. God's work is not always done on the mission field and this show tackled issues from which most other Christian shows would shy away (as well as episodes that were just a lot of fun.) They are also hosting a live event on October 26 in Burlington, Ontario. I hope you can come. (People often ask if I work there, but I don't. I pay for my ticket like everyone else.)

I'll be back next week with my reports on Florence and Venice (Cipriani, Fortuny and Gritti, oh my!) I hope you have a happy long weekend!
