NASHVILLE, TN – If you sometimes feel lost on your spiritual journey, you’ll find a trustworthy companion in Enuma Okoro. Okoro’s first book, Reluctant Pilgrim, releases in September. Readers are sure to be captivated by this luminous, laugh-out-loud funny, and piercingly honest account of the author’s personal quest to find and savor the goodness of God.

Okoro, a tea-drinking, purse-shopping, shaky follower of Jesus, wouldn’t mind meeting a guy who loves God and has decent hair. But after her father’s unexpected death, her grief seems to morph into the panicky feeling that God wants something more from her. Part Augustine, part Jane Austen with a side of Anne Lamott, Okoro’s book is daring, insightful, and a deeply moving field guide for the curious, the confused, and the convicted.

Fresh Air Books will formally launch Reluctant Pilgrim on October 11 at the Reality Center in Durham, North Carolina. The event will also feature special musical guest Shana Tucker, a “ChamberSoul” cellist/singer/songwriter from New York. Enuma Okoro will be touring and speaking about her book in the coming months in various cities throughout the U.S., including Washington, D.C., Atlanta, Nashville, Kansas City, and St. Paul.

Lighthouse Catholic Media Announces 2009 Results

In one of the most economically challenging years in memory, Lighthouse Catholic Media, a Not-for-Profit Corporation achieved a milestone in distributing over 975,000 audio CDs in 2009 for a growth rate of 29% over 2008. Since its’ founding in December, 2005 Lighthouse has distributed nearly three million inspiring Catholic CDs worldwide. Media for evangelization?

The Vatican on Saturday, Jan. 23rd issued a positive affirmation of media in the Church: (Zenit.org) Benedict XVI is encouraging Catholics, especially priests, to use media technologies to reach new audiences with the message of God’s love. The Pope affirmed this in a message, released Saturday, for the 44th World Communications Day, which will be celebrated May 16. The theme of the day, “The Priest and Pastoral Ministry in a Digital World: New Media at the Service of the Word,” reflects the Year for Priests currently underway in the Church. The Pontiff affirmed that in digital communications, “priests can discover new possibilities for carrying out their ministry to and for the Word of God. The recent, explosive growth and greater social impact of these media make them all the more important for a fruitful priestly ministry.”

Lighthouse Catholic Media’s CDs are distributed three ways: through their FAITHRAISER Kiosk Program displayed in over 2,400 parishes, Catholic schools and missions, the popular Lighthouse CD of the Month Club Program, and a new portable 16-CD display. The CD of the Month Club is a subscription-based service delivering CDs to individuals at an amazingly low rate of $5/month including postage with brand new titles being introduced monthly by inspiring speakers, both lay and clergy.

In January, 2010 the featured CD of the Month Club title is Building Better Families by Matthew Kelly. In addition, another CD released explains St. Louis De Montfort’s book True Devotion to Mary and how the intercession of our Blessed Mother is especially important for our troubled times. “AWESOME CD! As a convert I did not understand the beauty of our Blessed Mother. WOW! She is such a treasure and gift from God.” says Denise in Avonmore, PA.

The organization has lofty goals. This week, the not-for-profit announced its’ third offering in a handsome wall-mount or table-top portable display that holds sixteen CD titles. Priced at less than $200 for 80 CDs, Lighthouse Catholic Media expects to grow from the 2,400 parishes now served to over 6,000 of the approximately 18,000 US Catholic parishes. Catholic schools and missions across the Upper Midwest utilize tools such as http://www.lighthouseideas.org that enable volunteers to assist in the evangelical ministry.
