Everyone remembers and enjoys a good story -- and heartfelt stories touch us in ways nothing else can. Jesus used stories or parables to emphasize his points and lead his listeners to look at themselves and examine their motivations.

This collection of stories illustrating biblical passages from Cycle B of the Revised Common Lectionary will touch your soul. Berg speaks to the person in the pew with accounts drawn from conversations with people, observations of everyday life, and a vast arena of literature.

"Each story in Constance Berg's lovely book is a pleasure to read. She writes with real wisdom and with gentle sensitivity and warmth."
Marjorie Holmes, author Manassas, Virginia

"In her writing Constance Berg blends the gritty wisdom of a "prairie sage" with the delightful observations of a theologian. Her writing comes from real-life experiences, and her stories ring with the authenticity of her faithful witness. Faith and life meet together in Constance Berg's latest work."
Bob Sitze Associate Director for Ministry in Daily Life Resources Division for Congregational Ministries, ELCA

"The material in this book will give insights to those who need encouragement and hope for daily problems in life ... Berg has a flair for using simple illustrations and making them meaningful."
