For the last seven or eight years, I have been the leader of my Sunday School class. Part of what I do is make announcements every Sunday morning. My predecessor in this position used to bring some story every now and then that he’d heard or read on the internet, and I liked the idea so well I adopted it for myself. In fact, I read some story every Sunday. Sometimes it a joke or funny story, and sometimes it’s a serious story of devotional value.
About a year ago, I started thinking about all the different devotional stories I’d read to my class and how nice it would be to share them with more people. That led to gathering them into a book. With each story, if there was an author identified or aluded to, I wrote to ask permission to include it in my book. I had to omit a number of the stories either because that permission was denied or else because I could not get a response.
Realizing this smaller number of stories would make a pretty thin book, I decided to add my own comments after each one. Then, I decided to put in three pieces of my own writing. Each of the stories in the book is identified either as anonymous or by author’s name where permission was granted to use it.
Ten per cent of all proceeds from the sale of this book goes to support Christian ministries.
