For the past 3 years, it has been my joy and privilege to produce hundreds of congregational litanies to the public, to the Body of Christ, free of charge on my website. My model has been: just be creative and serve the church. It’s been great - freeing, expanding, humbling! But it’s no longer sustainable for me to only do it this way. With the amount of time the writing takes, and the busyness of life in general, and the way my career is currently structured, I need to earn a living wage for the hours that I spend working. So. Starting in 2019, the majority of my weekly and monthly litanies will be available via Patreon.
As I’ve gone along, I’ve more and more embraced my own identity as an artist and creative. Patreon is a blessing for artists. (What is Patreon?) It is a way that fans can participate in the work of their favorite creators. It’s actually a beautiful model of partnership, and a way that people who don’t necessarily consider themselves creatives can support and participate in the creation of beauty in the world.
I will still offer a couple of free litanies per month here on my site, but the bulk of the work will be accessible via subscription. If my work has been a blessing to your community, and you value its continuing, I invite you to join in on it by becoming a patron. For less than the price of a latte per month, you can see all or most of my offerings. And you can help me make it so that I can keep on creating and actually start to cover the cost of creating, and so the Church can keep on praying these prayers.
This work is alive and dynamic. I’m responsive to current events, to what society is experiencing, and of course to the ancient resonance of the Lectionary. I’m so jazzed by getting to create liturgy that is relevant and timely, but also ageless and timeless. I’m just getting started, folks! Also, don’t forget to grab a copy of my new book, available in paperback and kindle!
The catalogue of work that’s available here will, for the most part, remain. If you have questions about the changes I’m making, please email me via the contact page, or send me a message on facebook. As always, I’m sending you all love and light.
