Lancaster Christian Writers Welcomes Author Dave Bond This Saturday, February 15, 2014

Weather permitting (and we're trusting it will!), Lancaster Christian Writers will be meeting Saturday, February 15, 2014,  at Lancaster Alliance Church, 210 Pitney Rd (off Hwy 30 across from Costco) from 9:30AM-12 noon ((registration opens at 9). Local Lancaster area author David Bond will be sharing his own writing and life journey with us in a workshop entitled "More Than Sales".

ABOUT THE SPEAKER: When David Bond, already dealing with Type 1 diabetes and epilepsy, lost his eyesight in 1988 less than two years after marriage, he never anticipated his own personal challenges and spiritual journey would lead to a writing career. First published in an anthology, David now has five Christian novels in print, including The Attach√©, whose main protagonist loses his eyesight in Iraq. David's unique blend of biblically based fiction and intrigue delves into personal relationships where romance is second to grasping God’s larger picture. In his, “All Things Are Possible” trilogy, David weaves characters and story line of each book around medical conditions he knows from first-hand experience, providing insight into blindness, diabetes, and epilepsy in a way only someone who lives with these conditions can.

WORKSHOP: David Bond believes strongly that a calling to write is more than just about sales, but a gifting to ministry. In his workshop, "More Than Sales," he will be sharing his own life journey, along with a fascinating hands-on glimpse of the practicalities behind writing entire books without being able to see the computer screen, and some tips on story-weaving as well. If as a writer, you've ever wrestled with the validity and purpose of your gifting, then the message of "More Than Sales" is for you.

CRITIQUE GROUPS: Come prepared for our usual critique groups as well.

WEATHER: We will hope the groundhog is wrong, and the weather will be warmed by Saturday. But unless roads are impassible, we WILL be meeting. If you are not sure, check the LCW blogsite. Any cancellations will be posted there. An e-notice will be sent out as well.

Until Saturday!
