Dear Friend in Christ,

My name is Mitch Todd.  I'm a United Methodist pastor in Lawrence, Kansas. 

As we begin a new semester in our churches, I know this is the time of year when many of us are looking for new small groups and book studies, so I wanted to suggest a possibility for you to consider.

My mother, Judy Mitchell Rich (a Presbyterian pastor) has written and published a book called Like Sheep, and I wanted to let you know about it. 

Like Sheep is the story of a young female pastor called to serve a rural Kansas church in 1985.  What she discovers is a mystery -- someone is harassing the members of the church, bringing it to the brink of closing. 

The book is a "who-dunnit" set in the context of the Church.  I'm obviously biased, but I wanted you to know about the book, because I think it's great.  The book covers such questions as “What makes a group of people a church?”  “How can people name evil and respond to it without starting a witch hunt?” and “What ways might unresolved grief affect a person?” 

This book is entertaining and fast-paced, and would make for great conversations as a book study.

I have written an 11-part discussion guide that will lead groups through the book at whatever pace you choose.

If you're looking for something engaging and a little different, this may be right up your alley.


Rev. Mitch Todd

Judy, I wanted to tell you that I enjoyed your book Like Sheep. I also thought you did a good job in the pulpit last week.
You were very important to me when I first started attending First Athens. Our little study group was just the thing that I needed. Thank you,

I wish to talk about one important thing i like how you write the article to the level.


I guess you had an amazing family. A family, who can share thoughts to their penned ideas, is actually my dream family. If only all of us can ink-sling our feelings, it would be better, and can really make our lives differently. From the absurd thoughts we have on our present minds, through written expressions, we can build sharp-witted judgments, too.
