For those who loved hearing the Rev. Crafton here at St. Paul’s Ivy in the 2014 Lenten Speaker series, this book offers a welcome opportunity to hear about her experiences ministering among merchant seafarers, the homeless, the bereaved, AIDS patients, and others whom she encountered in her work as port chaplain in New York and New Jersey, and as an Episcopal priest at Trinity Church on Wall Street. Her voice of compassion and her self-deprecating humor entertain and involve the reader in each of the thirty-eight short stories in this book. In her Introduction, Crafton writes: “This book is a string of people’s moments: snapshots of diverse people in many different situations who nonetheless all have said something to me about my own life. And to you about yours, I hope.”
Copies of this book may be found on the table at the rear of the church. You are welcome to borrow and then return the book to this same place.
