[Editor’s note: On the first night of Hutchmoot 2018, Andrew Peterson suddenly took a break from his Resurrection Letters set to deliver a speech. As he made his way through the first few paragraphs, it became clear to everyone that some cherished soul in the room was about to win a very special award. Then, as the context clues came together, it was undoubtable that the recipient would be Ben Shive, seated modestly behind the piano on the far side of the stage.

Since the inception of the Rabbit Room community, we’ve believed that real relationship requires more than merely an online exchange of ideas. The last decade of creative work has taught us that an exchange of ideas needs to be accompanied by shared laughter, by the satisfaction of a shared meal, by the joy of friendship. We’ve realized the power of bringing big ideas into three-dimensional space inhabited by flesh and blood people.
The food is cooking. The sessions are set. The soundcheck is underway. Folders are printed. Art and books and other fine wares are on display. Surprises are in store. There’s a Hutchmoot at hand.
Travel safely. Arrive in good cheer. We’re going to have a fine weekend. Read More ›
At Hutchmoot, there are so many ways that we offer ourselves to one another: through stories, songs, conversations in the hallway, listening intently, and sharing meals, to name only a few.
Believe it or not, the Rabbit Room Podcast aired its first episode a decade ago, way back in 2008. In those ten years, it’s covered a LOT of territory, from sermons to movie reviews to cautionary tales about cassowaries. And while we’ve always loved the podcast, we’ve always felt it was a little unfocused, often trying to be too many things at once. At the same time, we’ve noticed around us a wealth of ideas just begging to grow into fully-realized podcasts of their own. So we’re putting the Rabbit Room Podcast itself out to pasture, but this isn’t a death, it’s an evolution. Welcome to the Rabbit Room Podcast Network.
The most important thing in your life is not what you do; it’s who you become. That’s what you will take into eternity. – Dallas Willard
Greetings, Rabbitarians! It brings me great joy to once more invite you to hop on over to the Renovaré Book Club, where we are about to begin a new season.
“One. Two. Three.”
Confession: I’m a wannabe monastic. I even mowed a makeshift prayer maze into my backyard when the grass got high enough. I like to slow my days and wander through weeds; I bet my neighbor Ryman thinks I’m crazy. “Greg must be hopped up on Mountain Dew. He’s shirtless and crying in the field. Who’s he talking to anyway? Should I check on him?”
The season of school is now upon us! To celebrate, we offer you a few of our favorite Rabbit Room books at reduced prices. Click through to learn more.
We are having a very special Local Show tonight to celebrate the release of Russ Ramsey’s The Mission of the Body of Christ! The evening will feature not only Russ Ramsey, but Andrew Peterson, Sandra McCracken, and Melanie Penn as well. This evening is sure to be a rich collection of songs and stories, and we’d love to have you join us.
Did you watch the Wingfeather Saga animated film and feel deeply moved by the mysterious, enchanting music that helped tell the story? Did you think, “I wonder what that song is—I sure do wish I could listen to it anytime I wanted!” If you answered yes, then today is your lucky day. The soundtrack to the Wingfeather Saga animated film is now available.
Each time I set out to put together a volume of The Molehill, I’m faced with a mystery. You see, unlike many magazines or journals, this isn’t a collection compiled according to a theme. There are few boundaries for what goes in and what stays out. “What are you looking for,” writers ask. I tell them to submit anything they’ve got; I’ll know it when I see it. But that itself is not the mystery. The mystery is that in an anthology of work that has no binding theme, a theme inevitably emerges. Read More ›
