The Contemplative Writer depends on the support of readers like you. Website hosting, email newsletter software, and posting add up each month, and the website itself takes up significant time.  Each week I commit to:

  • Writing and curating blog posts.
  • Selecting books, articles, and websites that are spiritually beneficial.
  • Compiling a newsletter with scripture reflections, book excerpts, examen questions, and more.

That’s quite a bit of work! The long-term sustainability of this site depends on readers chipping in. Even a one-time gift of $5 is a big help. All contributors will be listed below under “Supporters.”

Thanks for your support!
