By sharing initmate, personal stories, Reverend Marcia M. Cham confronts her own fear of death through her pastoral experiences. Through the stories, Cham discusses some nagging questions around death: Are we ever ready to die? Did Dad know he was going to die? Are our days numbered? Does God willy-nilly strike us dead? She and a grieving wife create bumper stickers and t-shirt slogans for the grieving out of the frustrating remarks from those unfamiliar with the grief process. As Cham journeys "through the valley of the shadow," she shares about accidental deaths, good deaths, celebrations of life, family deaths, and the invasion of and power of fear. She learns to treasure the gift of laughter as she moves deeper into the mysteries and surprises of life and death. Her journey is colored by humor, respectful irreverence, and honesty.

About the Author:

Reverend Marcia M. Cham is a retired pastor in the United Church of Christ and lives in western North Carolina with her husband Ken. She works as an on-call Chaplain at a nearby medical center. She has three married children and six grandchildren. She grew up in Ohio, attended Ohio University, and earned her Masters of Divinity at Boston University School of Theology. Her career path has evolved from science teacher to wood carver to pastor and now to author. With this first book behind her she is rewriting "The Gertie Stories" and working on two other books; one, a fictional account of her struggle with the institutional church, and the other, "Reflections from Tantur: An Ecumenical Institute in Israel/Palestine." For fun Cham is working on "1739 Sackett-A Memoir of Life with Evie and Willie." Cham is an active member of the High Country Writers in Boone, North Carolina.
