A Climax, a Church, and a Cool Contest

Whew! It's been a lovely few days, celebrating Christmas with the various sides of the family, but I am glad to be home again! I am bound and determined to make some headway through the last few chapters of Summer's Song. I'm at the point leading up to, and including, the climax, which will be a challenge since I'm changing a lot of it, but oh well!

Hey, did you see this article about the church in Chagrin Falls, Ohio, that gave away $50 to every member and then challenged people to double the amount? Pretty cool. And Chagrin Falls is a charming little town outside of Cleveland, by the way, in case you're ever driving through the state of Ohio and feel like stopping :)

And I can't leave today without mentioning the very cool contest that the folks over at The Long and the Short of It are running - you can win books! Doesn't everyone want to win books? Go forth and enter!

That was pretty cool about the church! I think it was Oprah who gave everyone in her audience $100 and challenged them to do something meaninful with it. Some folks were amazing, the things they came up with to do!

Good luck with Summer. I'm DYING to read the whole thing :-)

Isn't it wonderful what that church did. I live just a few miles from Chagrin Falls and a friend of mine who lives there told me about it. I was so surprised to see it mentioned on your blog.
