0 Reviews
Stories inAll Eyes and Blind are vivid, concrete, and thoroughly contemporary. What's more, they embody imagination at the service of community. For these stories, when read aloud and shared with others, evoke the telling of personal faith-stories. In the sharing of our stories, our lives, community forms. This is, after all, how we come to know one another in our uniqueness, our diversity and our commonality.
