By Pastor Lee Eclov

In the November Vine I announced that I have been working on a book for Moody Publishers entitled Pastoral Graces: Reflections on the Care of Souls. I finished the manuscript on November 29 and sent it to my editor. Now the review and marketing processes begin.

The book is scheduled for release around May 1. I am very grateful for the wonderful encouragement I have received, and for the freedom the elders gave me to pursue this in the first place. My editor wrote, “I believe we have a ‘gem’ with what you’ve done in this manuscript I’m more eager than ever to get the book completed and in the hands of readers. As I read it there are times that I laugh out loud and there are times that I weep in identification with the stories you tell.”
