Oh, This Is So Cool!!

A few minutes ago I discovered that Zion has been cited in a book! Yes, a real book published by Church Publishing (which is affiliated with the Episcopal Church) earlier this year. The book is Cohabiting Couples & Cold Feet: A Practical Marriage-Preparation Guide for Clergy by Robert W. Pritchard, professor of church history and pastoral theology at Virginia Theological Seminary.

I have no idea how good the book actually is, but it is one that will actually be bought and read by seminarians, priests, and others in the Episcopal and other mainline churches. Okay, that's a shrinking market that's not nearly as significant as it would have been 40 years ago. But still...

Granted, the author is just using a line from our wedding policy that he found via on the web for an example. And actually the example is pretty much boiler-plate wedding policy for a church with a member of the American Guild of Organists (I'm the chaplain for the local chapter).

Still, I typed it up and put it on our web site. And now it's in a book!
