Showers of Sparks
Memories of Encounters with the Love of God
About the Book
Stories are like rare coins, earned through the hard work of living, valuable only as they are exchanged and shared. Our shared humanity is affirmed in our stories, and we’re already connected with each other by the older stories from which our stories spring, by the showers of sparks that ignite our fires. In Showers of Sparks, author Stoddard B. Williams shares stories of his life, remembering and reflecting on times he’s experienced the love of God. Through a collection of poetry and narrative, he shows that stories bridge the spaces that can so easily separate us, such spaces as time and place and relationships. Stories, factual or fictional, become personal expressions of our doubts and beliefs, our convictions and confusions, our hopes and our fears. Showers of Sparks captures Williams’ memories, offering insight into his life and his relationship with God and others.
