Pastrix (limited) Book Tour!

Hello friends!

20 days until my book, Pastrix: The Cranky, Beautiful Faith of a Sinner & Saint, comes out and I take off for book events in a few cities.

I’m excited to share this book – a theological memoir about my life and faith and that of others who God has put in my path. That is to say, it is theology done in the first person; an imperfect confession of faith by an imperfect person of faith.

My full-time parish work does not allow me to travel for the weeks it would take to traverse the country doing book readings at local bookstores, so we came up with the idea of asking a few friends to host larger book events in their cities.

We will be holding book tour events and signings in Denver, Chicago, Minneapolis, San Francisco, Seattle, Dallas or Austin and I hope to see you in one of those cities.  Events are free, but you will need a ticket – please click here. You also will have the option of a $5 registration that comes with $7 off the price of the book the night of the event.

I’ve always wanted to give away a ham. So every on-line registration comes with a free raffle ticket. Additional tickets can be purchased for $5 the night of the event and those proceeds will go to a charitable organization of the host parish’s choosing. You could also win cotton candy or a cassette tape.

Do you know folks in Chicago, Minneapolis, San Fan, Seattle, Dallas or Austin? Please add their names to the FB events in their city.

    My report on the Minneapolis appearance Sept. 12.

    Haven’t read the book yet, but it doesn’t look promising. Our local religion newspaper reporter was raving about the book. What made me hit the brakes was when she boasted of the author’s irreverence and blatant use of raw language. What I gathered from others who have read the book is that the ‘raw’ language consists of a plethora of curse words. Now the use of filthy language didn’t start in the 21st century in America. So how come none of the authors of the books in the Bible, who span 2000 years of history, are ever caught giving us readers a ‘raw’ perspective of what is in their mind? How come they discourage us in their writing from using filthy communication? Is it maybe because the God of heaven and earth is holy and he wants his followers to also be holy?
