On Being Born Again and Again: How Grief, Gratitude, and Faith Led to New Lifeby Margery McManus Leach
In 1982, after the death of her second husband, Margery McManus Leach began a life of travel that opened her eyes to the many injustices in the world. In On Being Born Again and Again, she recounts how her life was constantly renewed by responding to the needs of others in foreign lands. Her rebirths, as she refers to them, began when she began participating in church-sponsored seminars in 1982.
While she was visiting in the Marshall Islands on a National Council of Churches overseas seminar experience, she heard testimony from individuals who had suffered grievously from US nuclear testing. She was horrified by what the United States government had done to these people and further distressed that their independence was being delayed until an agreement was signed that would continue unwanted nuclear presence in their territory. She could not maintain her silence about these injustices, and in 1984 it became her mission to travel around the United States exposing their actions as well as the roadblocks to world peace that they built up.
This revised edition of On Being Born Again and Again incorporates pieces from the earlier edition of the book with this revised edition, providing background for this edition.
