Beyond Words

BooksIt’s been brought to our attention that Jenny and I didn’t share with the congregation the book that was being given to the confirmands this past Sunday. The book was Beyond Words: Daily Readings in the ABC’s of Faith by Frederick Buechner. We’ve found it to be a great book for confirmands and graduates even though it was written for an adult audience (Jenny and I love it). There are 365 entries that you can use for a year’s worth of daily devotions or you can skip around to get a pithy and engaging take on biblical characters and theological concepts. It’s available at, but (the United Methodist Publishing House) has it in stock at a better price.
