Welcome to another idea from the Amy Foundation: the Church Writing Group.
The brainchild of Jim Russell and the Amy Foundation, Church Writing Groups are designed to tap into the power of, as Mr. Russell called them, the "latent" writers in the church, giving them training to speak out. These groups are not necessarily for professional writers (though pros are definitely welcome!). These groups are to help ordinary Christians speak out to our spiritually hungry nation.
Sound interesting? Then check out these free materials from the Amy Foundation:
- Guidelines for starting a Church Writing Group
- Ten Steps to starting a Church Writing Group
- Twelve lesson plans for Church Writing Groups
All these are available on the "Writing Resources" page of www.AmyFound.org.
And while you're there, don't forget to subscribe to the Amy Foundation's newsletter, the Pen & Sword. Again, this is a free resource, and you may receive this bi-monthly newsletter either electronically or by regular mail. You can also read back issues in PDF files on the "Newsletter" page of the site.
I hope this gives you lots of exciting information to check out and use in your own efforts to speak out with Christian truth to our nation and our world. Next, we'll hear more from first-place winner of the Amy Award in part 3 of my interview with Jan White.
