Writing a book is an act of creation. I hold a special place in my heart for each of the seven works of fiction I have created. I would be hard-pressed to say I like this one more than that one. Each work has its strengths… and weaknesses.
One sequence that I am particularly fond of is the Nativity sequence I wrote for Gaspar, Another Tale of the Christ. One of the highlights of my literary career occurred in January 2015 when my friend Alistair McKenzie came to Tucson and read the sequence at weekend masses at the Redemptorist Renewal Center in Picture Rocks, Arizona.
As Christmas rapidly approaches, I want to share Alistair’s reading of that sequence again with the thought that it might help strengthen our convictions and purpose as we conclude one year and move forward into another.
