Rev. Gonzaléz, a parish pastor and former Lutheran deaconess, has penned a book of powerful poetry which faces traumas, from everyday to cataclysmic, that intrude upon our lives. A timely compilation given the terror-filled moments that have shaped our reality! In these pages encounter: –the vision of fear and of promise that wakes to consciouness the sleeping soul. –the pain that brings profound healing. –the alchemy that arises when human community is touched by the divine. –inspiring courage to see the world with opened eyes. –a trembling hope that can still compel the sojourner to venture forth in hope, despite, and because, of the daily wreckage of life.
“If you have felt conflicted by overlapping emotions in grief, the poem, “Language of Loss,” will assure you that grief can be at once broadly shared, terribly lonely, and ultimately beautiful.” –Bob Komives (Colorado)
