As we ask God to moves us forward in our planning for 2024, the changes we have experienced beg the question of the purpose of the writing group. A fellow Christian authors group was guided by a mantra which shall be restated very roughly here: a writing group is to prune and feed writers so that publishers may buy and readers may savor the glory of God. That is a beautiful thought to open a new year with.
We have an exciting and high caliber line-up of Christian speakers booked for 2024. As we seek wisdom to fill in the few months left without an activity or speaker, and as we look ahead through a new board, it is our hope the group will remain faithful to the old hymn, Be Thou My Vision, and remain humble as we reflect that the author of this hymn has long been debated and appears lost to time. As we write for our God, may our work be found to be worthy even as our names fade into obscurity.
