ASHTABULA_Although he has retired from careers as a manufacturing marketing executive and ordained minister Glen Warner has not retired from writing. His most recent effort is the 371-page Christian book “Meeting the Word in the World”, a collection of meditations. Warner writes about his interest in nature, travel and Christian faith.
“When we read the Bible in the beauty of nature, new insights about God’s wonderful plan for our lives becomes living, reliable facts. This eternal wisdom touches our souls; and without it we become less than gnats, with neither origin nor destiny,” Warner says on the back cover of his book.
Also printed on the book’s back cover, “The basic principle of this collection of meditations is the entering of ’sacred spaces’. These are places where we may find God who is seeking a relationship with us; and waits as long as it takes for our acceptance of His love.”
Warner was at the Giant Eagle in the Saybrook Plaza Saturday and Sunday promoting the sale of his book with all funds raised being used to purchase a young beef animal, which will be raised to maturity and then processed for Farm for Christ. The hamburger will be given to Ashtabula County Food Pantries for distribution. The goal is to raise $1,000 that will lead to 500 pounds of beef.
Farm for Christ is a new local mission work sponsored by the Saint Vincent DePaul Society. Call founder Drew Thomas at 216.780.3845 for more information.
