Pieces of A Life : Reflections: Sacred and Secular
Pieces of a Life is a different kind of book in that it is not an autobiography in the strictest sense of the term. It does not move from the beginning (one's birth or ancestry) to the end of life, but rather, it deals with people, stories, anecdotes, events, and thoughts I have had over the years that have largely centered around my interest in religion. The book is about my life, but there is nothing chronological about it; it is presented to you in pieces, a piece here and a piece there. Hopefully, you will find interest in these vignettes—some entertaining, some educational—and hopefully they might enlighten you to think more about your soul, salvation, and Father in heaven. If a story takes you there, perhaps others will follow.Unless you are born with great talent and ability, you, like me, will never do anything belonging to a great autobiography. Nevertheless, all our lives have worth, and there are things that others would find very interesting. God, our Father, has placed in each one of us matters that make us unique. This is my attempt to do just that, and I hope that it will encourage you to do your own such endeavor. Sometimes we have to share those things with other people. Perhaps, in doing so, we can change the world for the better.
