Overview

"It occurred to me that I could keep people out of my life by building a simple wall. The wall would be a kind of boundary, a kind of protection..."

Thus begins this beautiful, heart-searching modern parable written and illustrated by Gloria Jay Evans. The "simple wall," begun out of a desire for some measure of privacy, gradually becomes more and more complex—and ugly—as huge stones of fear, anger, jealousy, resentment, self-pity, pride and indifference block out all of the outside world.

Until—"in the stillness of my broken world I knew in my whole being a Blessed Presence. I knelt there in wonder that God would come to me. And I wept with joy that I was not alone—and that my darkness had been penetrated by his blessed light."

That divine-human encounter marks the turning point in the parable of The Wall. Stone by stone, the author tells how God leads us to break down our restrictive walls by getting rid of our negative attitudes toward other people. It is not an easy task, and there are occasional slips back into the old habit patterns, but little by little we re-discover the thrill of sharing and open communication.
