Tonight’s guests have been working on a project that “has been slowly simmering for years.” Released last year the two-part I Will Not be Shaken compilation features a CD with all of Steve Bell’s songs based on the Psalms and a book co-written by Bell and friend and pastor Jamie Howiso
Arts Connection for Monday, May 2, 2016 - Steve Bell and Jamie Howison - The "I Will Not Be Shaken" collection
Arts Connection for Monday, April 25, 2016 - Dorene Meyer - "First Nations Christian Writers - Volume 1" anthology
Veteran writer Dorene Meyer launched Goldrock Press to help give a voice to First Nations Christian writers. The publisher recently launched the first volume of an anthology of essays, poems and stories by 16 First Nations writers ranging in age from 16 to 79 and Dorene is on the phone from her home office in Norway House, Manitoba to talk about the book.
Whether it’s going to speak at a writers’ conference or spend some time on the mission field, author Marcia Laycock has spent a lot of her life travelling.
Growing up, talking about difficult issues was encouraged in the household of tonight’s guest. That, and her love for polar bears led to the creation of Hannah Hayes’ book Betty the Polar Bear where the heroine struggles with self-esteem.
“Holy chutzpah and a bold trust in miracles led Morris and Annie Zeidman to found the Scott Mission in 1941,” says guest Ben Volman.
