I just sent a rough draft of my second book, SPIRITUAL PILGRIM: Lessons from Mystic Journeys with Five Faiths, to my favorite editor to begin the process of polishing it.  I continue to enjoy the journey.  If you haven’t read my first book, SPIRITUAL AUDACITY: Six Disciplines of Human Flourishing, please buy it and read it.  If you enjoy it, please give it a five star review on amazon.  That is the only way amazon will offer it to others to read as well.  Thank you.  Jim

Beginning Well

It has been among the top 5% best selling books on amazon, has already garnered eight five star reviews, and my distributor has shipped over 200 copies of my book this first month.  I am very grateful for all of you who believed in me and encouraged me on this path.  getting this message of human flourishing out to a wider audience feels like my newest ministry. If you have not yet read my book, please buy it and read it, I want to know what you think of it.  If you have read it, and liked it, please post a review on amazon.  Amazon says if I can get fifty positive reviews of my book then they will offer it to others seeking spiritual books as well. Thank you all!      

Transcendentalist Concord

Last night friends and transcendentalists gathered at First Parish in Concord to welcome Concord’s latest transcendentalist author’s book SPIRITUAL AUDACITY: Six Disciplines of Human Flourishing into the literary world. First Parish’s senior minister Rev. Howard Dana opened with a poem from Mary Oliver, perhaps America’s leading living transcendentalist poet.  Then he offered a few words on human flourishing.  Next Rev. Dr. Jim Sherblom explained how the book came to be and read excerpts from the chapters on divine mystery and spiritual awakening.  The evening culminated with Louisa May Alcott, courtesy of Orchard House, wandering in to congratulate Concord’s latest transcendentalist author.  Now on to the October 5, 2017 author’s night at the Concord Library.

Audacity for Unitarian Universalists

Anyone who knows me well knows I delight in being audacious.  Like sitting down to write the story of my life as a spiritual memoir, and it becoming a guidebook to  help discover your own spiritual path. I have traveled a strange and mystic path and hope it helps you on your journey. If you are anywhere near First Parish Unitarian Universalist in Concord, MA from 7 pm to 9 pm on Friday, September 22, 2017,  please come by and join our celebration and book launch party.  There will be readings, refreshments, and books to buy and sign.  All are welcome!
