Intersections of Grace: Reflections on a Life of Faith
New Beginnings, an imprint of Material Media, 2013Intersections of Grace grew out of a series of devotional talks delivered to Susan’s Bible Study group. After much encouragement from the women in the group , she turned these talks into a collection of written essays and prayers. God’s word, nature, pets, travel, and daily life inspired the writings. Over the years, as a student of the Bible, Susan has witnessed many manifestations of God’s Grace. These essays beautifully express Susan’s belief that if we are only attentive, we may see the intersections of God’s Grace at every step of our journey.
The book's foreword is written by the renowned Louis H. Zbinden, Jr., the former senior pastor of The First Presbyterian Church in San Antonio - a role in which he served for 30 years. In 2002, First Presbyterian Church established the Louis H, and Katherine S. Zbinden Chair of Pastoral Ministry and Leadership at the Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary. Zbinden became the first to hold the chair the following year. "I am so grateful for the words of Pastor Zbinden as he has had a tremendous impact on my journey in faith over the years," notes Kerr. "It is so fitting and I am so humbled to have his foreword as an introduction to my work."
The second edition includes thought provoking study questions that can help facilitate your own awareness of intersections of God’s grace, or make a wonderful tool to be used in a study group.
