Letters From Damascus

Life with children is filled with precious, precocious moments. In this anthology, Greg's short story "It Was Worth It" paints a touching and inspiring father-son moment. Works from 44 other authors tell of adults teaching children, children teaching adults and - best of all - the awareness that God does indeed know and care. He's waiting with open arms, ready to show us the beauty in life, often through a child. 

Twelve-year-old Ran is sent by his parents to spend the summer with his aunt and uncle against his wishes. But the next three months will define much of his life that follows, and forever alter the lives of those around him. A heart-warming coming of age story set in Pawleys Island, SC.

Some time has passed since Dane, Sam, Rett, Emile and Martin gathered for a rather unusual study group in Greg's 
award-winning play, The Gills Creek FiveThe Lost Bean is a fitting epilogue to their story, moving the characters on, providing closure and hope where needed and, above all, providing time together with friends.
