Book description
I centered the book around the scripture in Micah 6:8: “What does the Lord require of thee? To act justly, to love mercy and to walk humbly with thy God.” In these columns I shed light on Micah’s, words through examples found in the collection of my weekly newspaper columns. Whether is recalling my parents conserving water and electricity at their church parsonage home –thereby being good steward of the recourses being paid for by my father’s congregation- or recounting the story of a concentration camp survivor- the essays though the years I believe will deepen people’s understanding of Micah’s words and what the Lord requires of us.

The first part of the book, “To Act Justly” consist of stories and essays that illuminate what it means for Christians to live and work for justice in this life. In this section there are essays from learning a lesson about distracting others from their focus on God to the devastation and results of gossip among people. Also there are essays about choices that cause people to stop and think about their choices. The second part of the book “To Love mercy” consists of stories about just that – the need for mercy in our lives. I recall the story of the Strange Guy in our town that ate from dumpsters, our family’s reaction to that man and what we learned from that man. The third section of the book is “To walk humbly with your God.” This section is filled with essays that portray what walking humbly means. From my bittersweet adolescent memory of trying to secure the spot of camp pianist to humbly remaining faithful to our calling, I believe the reader will see what inspiration comes from stories in our lives that point toward walking humbly.
