Book description
Three master storytellers--Frederick Buechner, Maya Angelou, and James Carroll--share their personal stories and give insights into the use of story in revealing God's presence in our lives. These three novelists lead the viewer to discover the power of memory to heal, the value of telling secrets and the possibilities of changing the future by forgiving the past. This video is divided into four segments:
The Man in the Gray Slacks - Frederick Buechner uses the story of his father's suicide to explore themes of pain, the sharing of secrets and the power of forgiveness.
A Father and a Son - James Carroll shares a memoir of his parents in which he deals with questions of identity, family and parental reconciliation.
The Cowardly Lion - Frederick Buechner describes a time when "a lot of sad and scary things were going on in our house" and discovers God's presence in the midst of darkness.
Mama and Uncle Willie - Maya Angelou conjures up the people and images of childhood to comment on the strength of family attachments, the value of community and the power of love over death.
Running time: 1 hr. 20 min., (Adult)
