      1. A Brief Explanation

      This will be a relatively short edition of the Chi Rho Press eNewsletter. We
      wanted to get something out to highlight the book tour of Dr. Rembert Truluck,
      author of �Steps to Recovery from Bible Abuse� that is starting this weekend.
      We also want to invite as many of our readers in the Washington DC/
      Maryland/Virginia/Delaware area as possible to join us for one or more of the
      events at which Dr. Truluck is speaking.

      We had an early summer hiatus with a few weeks between the 19th and the 20th
      eNews and now we are raring to go! The Truluck book tour is going to be
      perhaps but we expect it to be an exciting time of education and sharing.
      Check the tour schedule in the next article and if you are anywhere in the
      vicinity of any of the events, please join us! E-mail or call me for
      directions to any of the events!

      And there is great news about the new look for our web site
      www.ChiRhoPress.com see what Dotti Berry and her crew have done with our new
      shopping cart and ability to accept credit cards!

      6. Adam's Last Word.

      I had a wonderful note from Mel White in response to my Last Word (�number 8)
      in the 20th eNewsletter. Mel writes, on Fri, 21 July 2000:

      �Oh, dear brother,
      Number 8 was great.
      I'm going to use your defense as my defense.
      I'm really being criticized in all the ways you mentioned, over and over
      Thanks for even thinking about a defense, let alone writing such an eloquent
      and persuasive piece.
      I am forever grateful.

      I am pleased and honored to be a part of Soulforce and Mel�s important
      ministry. I truly believe that Soulforce is the most important development in
      the LGBT movement since Stonewall.

      I am very excited about the new look to our web site with the shopping cart
      and credit card acceptance. Many thanks to Dotti Berry and her team for their
      hard work! Please do check it out and let me know what you think!

      As I gear up for Dr. Truluck�s visit I am trying to take some time here and
      there to work on my special hobby stained glass. I am making four
      window-sized panels for my home congregation, Holy Redeemer MCC in College
      Park, Maryland. If you come to the service at which Dr. Truluck is preaching
      on Aug. 13 you can see the first of the finished panels the Holy Spirit

      I also make small stained glass crosses, gay flags, and AIDS ribbons, which
      Rho Press sells through its on line catalog (www.ChiRhoPress.com) and some
      at conferences. But for me the stained glass is a labor of love a gift and
      skill God has given me, which I thoroughly enjoy and which I am fortunate
      enough to be able to use to bring pleasure to others.

      I hope you each have a hobby something different from your work, something
      creative perhaps, which gives you joy, and which provides a time of closeness
      to God and refreshment and relaxation. Too many LGBT leaders and activists
      concentrate too much on their work and ministries and don�t take time for
      themselves. I urge you to take time to refresh, re-energize, and restore your
      spirits in whatever way that works for you. You are too precious a
      resource to
      waste through burnout!

      That�s it for this edition of the Chi Rho Press eNewsletter. It is perhaps a
      little longer than I expected! We are very excited about Dr. Truluck�s tour
      and will tell you more about how it all went in our next issue of the eNews.


      We are glad you are partners with us here at Chi Rho Press. We are eager for
      your comments, your suggestions, your assistance with selling our books, and
      your own purchases! And of course, we covet your prayers for this ministry.

      Grace and peace,

      Adam DeBaugh, Director
