Derek is signing books!

Our good pastor, Rev. Dr. Derek Penwell, wrote a book. And it's coming out August 15.

An honest-to-goodness published book. With a cover and everything! No more of this blogging business . . . okay just kidding, he's still blogging.

On August 17th from 4-6pm here at Douglass Boulevard Christian Church, Derek will be signing copies of his book, The Mainliner's Survival Guide to the Post-Denominational World. Wine, cheese, and good vibes will be provided.

Please come out and support Derek and congratulate him all the hard work that has gone into this huge achievement.

There will be copies of the book to purchase on the day of the signing. But if you'd prefer to purchase one of your own beforehand, you can preorder one at

If you'd like to find out more about Derek the author, or read a few excerpts from the book--you know, just to see if it's worth your time--check him out on his website, and on his author page of Facebook.
