About the Book

In an endeavor to find a fresh way into the scriptural text upon which I would be preaching, I began to develop an imaginary world populated primarily by wee folk. I found they - the characters I developed and the way that they evolved in my mind and on the page - served me well as a consideration of how I sensed things happening in the scriptural text at hand. I want to make these stories and the world they represent newly available and so I bring them to book form fifty at a time. The cover drawing was done by Anne Sullivan, the author’s daughter. The drawing is the artist’s conception of Missus Duns’ Sod House in the Hills.

About the Author

I am a retired minister from the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) living in the hills of the Northern Panhandle of West Virginia. I began writing these stories as a part of my background reflection toward sermon preparation in August 1981. I continued the discipline for nearly twenty five years. The changes in circumstances twenty two years into the process eventually brought the series to an end. I came to refer to my stories as a fairy tale exegesis of the text from which I would be preaching the following service. I now live in retirement with my wife of nearly forty nine years , two dogs, several cats and two ducks.
