I would like to thank the many wise and kind friends who have helped me complete both of these books – they grew out of the life of a community, and I hope they will nourish communities in their turn.Thank you to all who have talked through ideas, lent me books, answered historical questions, entered into discussion on many subjects, and shared tea and prayer with me. I appreciate it so much – as I also appreciate the long-distance, virtual community we are developing online.
I hope these books will be of use, both as individual texts and together .
I hope they will help youngsters, families, and churches share the wonderful stories of a people discovering the love of God. I hope they will be a blessing to many.
Here is a little snippet from Prayers and Verses
In all my thinking and speaking and doingthis day,Help me be loving,help me be peaceful,help me be kind.
