Marathon blogger

My friend Isabella Mori just completed a gruelling 24-hour blogging marathon, posting every 30 minutes during that time. She did this to raise funds for the Canadian Mental Health Association (Burnaby-Vancouver Branch). In the process she ended up talking about my new book A Firm Place to Stand as well as other topics on the church and mental health.

If you're interested in how Isabella and her commenters dealt with the topic of the Christian faith and its response to mental illness check out these posts. They make for interesting reading:
