    May 2010 Newsletter

    By Mark Roth on May 15, 2010 at 10:18 am

    Early yesterday morning I sent out our May 2010 newsletter. As usual, you can get it via email from our home page.


    Sharon Singers 2009 presents “Who Is Like Jehovah?” — a choral a cappella collection of 23 hymns and songs:

    But you might be able to get a free one at the end of the month. How? By being a Like-r of our Facebook page:

    Five of them, to be exact; three from Christian Light Publications and two from TGS International:

    Empanadas (Mexican Turnovers) from Heart and Hearth:

    I grew up in Mexico and also served there as a missionary later. I like empanadas (em-pa-na-thas) very much.

    Spanish pronunciation tips: their e sounds like our e in bet and their a sounds quite a bit like our a in father.


    From the beginning of Anabaptist Bookstore, I’ve made it easy to order multiple items (on the same page) with a single click. That would be as opposed to clicking an “Add to Cart” or “Buy It Now” button next to each item.

    Well, recently a customer wrote:

    “Ordering is cumbersome since all items are listed in one long list; if you order something at the top of the list, you have to scroll all the way down to the bottom to order.”

    So I’ve been working on addressing the issue without giving up the ease of ordering multiple items with one click.

    To see the solution I’ve come up with…and to learn about a temporary 10% discount on Rod and Staff’s Preschool ABC Series…visit our business Facebook page and click the Discussions tab:

    Did you know that Anabaptist Bookstore is a small home business which I launched in 1998 to help support our family and my original Web site (http://www.anabaptists.org)? Each dollar you spend at our business generates about 15 cents in profit. Thank you for each dollar you spend here!

    If you want between-newsletter-releases updates, we provide those via blog, Twitter, and Facebook. I put the links to each of those after my sign-off below.

    As you likely know, Rod and Staff Publishers has a 5% discount going on their curriculum. Though we aren’t matching that, we do offer our usual year-round reduced shipping rates. 🙂

    When you’re ready to purchase curriculum from Christian Light Education, please enter their site through ours. And a special thanks to all of you who have supported us by doing so!

    Just in case you forgot, we have some used stuff as well as some shipping-damaged items — CLE LightUnits, Rod & Staff curriculum, storybooks, “regular” books:

    “From whence come wars and fightings among you? come they not hence, even of your lusts that war in your members?”

    If I don’t walk humbly with other Christians, I cannot walk humbly with God. Can I? I mean, if I’m walking with two people, can I possibly be fully clothed in the presence of one but utterly naked in the presence of the other?

    “Ye lust, and have not: ye kill, and desire to have, and cannot obtain: ye fight and war, yet ye have not, because ye ask not.”

    Oh, God, give me the humbleness of mind to not be that way!

    “Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts.”

    My rendition: “You ask but do not receive because you do not ask humbly.”

    And you’ll find the rest of this in my blog post titled “I Want to Be Humble”:
