Seasons of Sorrow: The Release Event (You’re Invited!)

Seasons of Sorrow

I recently announced that I have a new book on the way. Seasons of Sorrow: The Pain of Loss and the Comfort of God will release on September 13 and is now available for pre-order. This is a book I wrote in the year following the sudden death of my son and it tracks through the seasons as I reflect on the deep loss my family experienced and the precious comfort God provided.

Today I would like to let you know that I will be hosting a special launch event for the book. It will take place in Nashville, Tennessee just prior to the beginning of the Getty Music Sing! conference—Monday, September 5 at 10:30 AM (which is Labor Day). It will last for one hour and be completely free to attend. Coffee and tea will be served. (RSVP)

You do not need to be attending the Sing! conference in order to participate in this launch event—it is open to everyone. But if you are attending Sing!, never fear, you will still have plenty of time to get to the opening session.

I am honored that some special friends will be joining me:

  • Alistair Begg will join me in a conversation about grief and loss (this will be the only chance to see/hear him at Sing! since he will not be participating beyond this)
  • CityAlight (“Yet Not I but Through Christ in Me,” “It Was Finished Upon that Cross”) has written a brand new song to complement the book and will be debuting it here

And who knows? I can make no promises, but another special guest may turn up as well. Afterward, I will be sticking around and would love to meet as many of you as I can.

The event is being held at Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center (2800 Opryland Dr, Nashville, TN 37214) and will kick off at 10:30 AM.

If you would like to attend, we ask that you RSVP here. Further details, such as the specific room and directions to get there, will be posted here and emailed to you as the date approaches.

    Why Didn’t You Tell Me?

    If you have spent any time at all on YouTube, you have probably seen videos of people hearing for the first time or people seeing color for the first time—videos of people who, through the miracles of modern science, have senses restored that had either been missing altogether or that had become dull through illness…

    We All Have To Do With God

    Every one of us must deal with God. Every one of us must, at some time, face God. Every one of us must be prepared to give an account to God. For, as Scripture says, “Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto…
