Description

Author Sally Ann McLean offers a selection of her essays and poems in At Faith Value: Seeing His Hand at Work in the Ordinary. Written by McLean for a church newsletter during the 1990s, her selections are for readers who have hungry hearts for seeking God in everyday life. They have been arranged in accordance with parts of the liturgical-or church-calendar, with a bit of the Julian calendar thrown in as well. The sixty-eight essays and three poems allow the reader to find in McLean's gentle and graceful writing style a welcome sense of calm and quiet in the midst of the hustle and bustle of modern life. Her writings offer a pleasant beginning to the day or a peaceful end to one and are meant to be read occasionally throughout the year. Having completed two years of study in the lay ministry, McLean writes that while she became a Lutheran by chance, growing up in that denomination, she has remained a Lutheran by choice. That being so, she hopes her readers will find her writings to be ecumenical, appealing to readers of all faiths, inviting them to ask if they agreee with her or not, and if not, why not. Perhaps those who claim no faith at all might find food for thought! At Faith Value may be a launching pad for group Bible studies for the laity and may be a help to the clergy in jump-starting sermon preparation.show more
