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 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 Carymba sitting upon the Rock at the end of the Way Down.
