Have you thought about writing for the Christian Science periodicals but never quite got around to it because you just didn’t know where to start?

Please join us on Sunday April 23 at 2:00pm in Dallas at Fifth Church, as two representatives from the Christian Science Publishing Society walk us through:

  • Mission of magazines
  • The Writing process for
    • Articles
    • Testimonies
    • Audio option
  • How to write
  • Editing – what’s involved
  • JSH process–what happens to your article after we receive it
  • Writing exercise – get that pen or computer running
  • Next steps

Get Prepared:

  • Read the March 2017 Journal interview with Barbara Vining and
    Tony Lobl and the submission guidelines for articles and testimonies ( found at https://jsh.christianscience.com/submit)
  • Begin that first draft and bring it with you.

Where:
Fifth Church of Christ, Scientist

5655 W Northwest Highway
Dallas TX  75220

When:
Sunday April 23 at 2pm

RSVP: 214-361-1625 or fifthclerk@sbcglobal.net
(Please RSVP to our Clerk so we will know how many chairs to set up and water/snacks to have on hand)

There will be small follow up meetings to help you edit and fine tune
your submissions via Skype.

This is the first meeting of its kind in the US.  We may be recording the session to help the Publishing Society team develop these meetings for others.

Helping those in need – pick up your angel card – then come help wrap gifts on Sun., Dec 11!

This Christmas season, our church is again partnering with
SafePlace’s Sponsor a Family program to fill some
needs and wishes. SafePlace is an organization
providing safety and counseling for families affected by
domestic violence and abuse. In the coming weeks, our
Sunday School teachers will be discussing how we can
use a metaphysical approach to healing domestic
violence and abuse, gift-giving and other subjects
pertaining to our Christmas event.

Starting on Wednesday, November 23, angel cards,
containing the personal need or wish of an individual in
the SafePlace program, will be hanging from the garland
in the hallway. Simply take an angel shopping with
you and purchase something from the list (suggested
spend is $25-$50 per angel).

Bring your unwrapped gift to the Sunday School for
storage (keep the angel with the gift!). Then join us on
Sunday, December 11
, immediately following church

services, to wrap gifts, sing hymns and carols and
enjoy lunch and Christmas cookies!

We look forward to an outpouring of love to our
community!
