A Good Read

"No matter how dark the tapestry God weaves for us, there is always a thread of grace"

I just finished reading Thread of Grace by Mary Doria Russell. It's a novel about the Italian partisan effort to hide Jewish refugees during World War II. The story is one of sacrifice, giving and tolerance. It was beautifully written and even more beautifully inspiring. At the core of this effort which, in reality, saved over 40,000 Jews from persecution, was a doctrine of selfless giving. It was a compelling story inspiring hope, ingenuity and compassionate salvation.
