Starting today and running through Saturday, Dec. 10, our religion section is on sale at 50% off. In this Advent season as you consider gifts for those you love, here’s a great opportunity to give something inspiring and insightful.
We’re proud of our selection here, but we’re moving the whole section into the pocket room and need you to help us curate it anew.
This sale includes all in-stock merchandise in the section (plus in the kids’ section) on religion and faith, comparative religion, new age and what we call the eccentric. In addition, for pre-paid orders during the sale, we’ll give you 25% off on all orders when discounts are available.
In January, you can expect us to resume a reliable books blogging schedule, but during December we’ll be selectively placing books on sale by section. Subscribers, you should be sure to read your December e-mails so you won’t miss an opportunity.
In the meantime, let me share with you this meditation by Victoria Safford:
Our mission is to plant ourselves at the gates of hope — not the prudent gates of Optimism, which are somewhat narrower; nor the stalwart, boring gates of Common Sense; nor the strident gates of self-righteousness … nor the cheerful, flimsy garden gate of ‘Everything is gonna be all right,’ but a very different, sometimes very lonely place, the place of truth-telling, about your own soul first of all and its condition, the place of resistance and defiance, the piece of ground from which you see the world both as it is and as it could be, as it might be, as it will be; the place from which you glimpse not only struggle, but joy in the struggle — and we stand there, beckoning and calling, telling people what we are seeing, asking people what they see.
