Lent: What Makes Us Useful?

Brother Andrew… had always been puzzled by our interest in a book project.

“I can’t imagine why you’d want to write about me,” he had said when we first proposed it, “who would be interested? I’m the son of a village blacksmith – never even graduated from high school. I’m just an ordinary person.”

That, of course, was exactly the appeal of his story. How indeed had God been able to use a fellow with a bad back, a limited education, no sponsorship and no funds, to do things that well-connected, well-endowed people said were impossible? …that was what made Brother Andrew’s adventures so intriguing.
