      3. New Promissory Notes Offered
      4. Adam's Last Word


      1. New Liturgical Calendar Published!

      compiled by the Rev. Tom Bohache. $4.95 each, $3.75 each for six or more
      copies, plus shipping and handling.

      Chi Rho Press has published a liturgical calendar for MCC and other Christian
      communities of faith every year since 1995.

      The Rev. Tom Bohache, pastor of MCC in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, has again
      compiled the liturgical calendar for us this year. In response to readers�
      requests, Tom has used the Revised Common Lectionary.

      The scripture readings for every Sunday and holy day are listed, along with
      liturgical color of the day and season of the church year. Instead of
      themes for secular readings, as last year, Tom has provided an extensive
      bibliography of suggested secular readings that has accumulated in his long
      successful ministry. There is also a chart of liturgical colors corresponding
      with seasons of the church year.

      The Liturgical Calendar for Year C begins on the first Sunday in Advent on
      December 3, 2000, and ends on the Last Sunday of Pentecost on November 25,
      2001. In the interest of clarity and convenience, the calendar runs
      through to
      the end of calendar year 2001, Advent and Christmas of the next liturgical
      (Year A). �It is the author�s aim to provide, in one easily accessible
      location, the most frequently needed information for preparing the worship
      service the readings of the church year.�

      The Calendar is now available for $4.95 each, $3.75 each for six or more
      copies, plus shipping and handling. Please go to our Web page to order using
      our convenient shopping cart, and pay with your credit card.

      4. Adam's Last Word.

      Thanksgiving was a wonderful day for me perhaps the best I have had in
      It started out as a disaster. A dear friend with whom I had planned to have
      Thanksgiving dinner canceled the day before!

      Our wise, patient, and altogether wonderful Office Manager who was part of
      plan as well calmed me down and we went off to Trader Joe�s Wednesday evening
      to buy a stuffed turkey breast, lots of veggies, and some wonderful shrimp and
      cocktail sauce.

      Thanksgiving Day began with a very festive brunch at Kevin�s mother�s home a
      good friend and Weight Watchers buddy to me. Then Kevin came to my place to
      help cook what turned out to be a wonderful dinner for just the two of us.
      Lots of laughter, great conversation (no business! well not much business!),
      and good food made for a very fun meal. After dinner we went off the home of
      Kevin�s aunt and her kids for desert. The kids were delightful (Bennett�s
      Thanksgiving Day joke: what do you get when you cross a turkey and a
      banjo? A
      bird who can pluck itself.) and Kevin�s aunt is a professional photographer
      insisted we all had to sit for a portrait before we got desert. Another
      was there with pictures from his recent trip to China.

      All in all it was a very wonderful day. I hope your Thanksgiving Day was just
      as wonderful!

      I give thanks for my friends and family, especially for Kevin and his

      I give thanks for serendipitous days which seem as if they are going to be
      disastrous but end up being magical.

      I give thanks for God�s leading of Chi Rho Press, for the Press� continued
      growth, for the wonderful authors who have entrusted their precious words to
      our ministrations, for our investors who have faith in the future of Chi Rho
      Press, for the subscribers to our eNewsletter, and for our wonderful customers
      who do us the honor of buying our books.

      And I give thanks for our Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgendered Tribe, and
      for the spirituality and faith of so many of our gloriously diverse community.

      Books make wonderful gifts! Please do at least some of your Christmas
      at www.ChiRhoPress.com!
