Letting in the Light by , Summary
Letting in the Light is a book of poems, all of which I wrote between the ages of eighty and eighty-six. They seemed to emerge naturally, both from when I was forty-one years in the active ministry and from reflections and writings during retirement. You might say that poetry finally found me and has become the best way I know of putting into words some things Ive begun to learn. Writing poems has opened up the world in ways I hadnt expected. Its made me aware of connections to other people and to the earth, which is truly our mother. Letting in the Light is a book about discovering the holy in the ordinary, everyday experiences that come to all of us. Some have described my poems as accessible. I hope those who read them will find them of some help. They are offered by a fellow journeyer.
