unnamedThrough the years, being surrounded by a family of published writers had become commonplace for Terrell Hills photographer Susan Moorman Kerr. But now with the upcoming release of her book Intersections of Grace: Reflections on a Life of Faith, Kerr adds to the varied library produced by her family of prolific writers. From the historical novels penned by her husband John Kerr, legal thrillers written by John’s brother Baine, cookbooks written by her two sisters-in-laws, her father-in-law’s wartime memoir, two books her distinguished grandfather and a freelance writer daughter whose work has appeared in the New York Times, the Kerr/Moorman families have produced writers in many genres.

Intersections of Grace came into fruition through a series of devotional talks Kerr delivered to her home Bible Study group. After much encouragement from the women in the group, she turned these talks into a collection of written essays and prayers. Her writings are inspired by experiences in her daily life to include God’s word as a student of the Bible, nature, pets and travel. Kerr also tied in her work as an accomplished photographer by including 15 of her photographs in the book.

“During my life, I have experienced many manifestations of God’s Grace,” notes Kerr. “Above all, I hope my writings help others recognize that if we are attentive, we may see these intersections at every step of our life journey and that we are therefore, never truly alone.”

 

The book’s foreword is written by the renowned Louis H. Zbinden, Jr., the former senior pastor of the First Presbyterian Church in San Antonio–a role in which he served for 30 years. In 2002, First Presbyterian Church established The Louis H. and Katherine S. Zbinden Chair of Pastoral Ministry and Leadership at the Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary.  Zbinden became the first to hold the chair the following year. “I am so grateful for the words of Pastor Zbinden as he has had a tremendous impact on my journey in faith over the years,” notes Kerr. “It is so fitting and I am so humbled to have his foreword as an introduction to my work.”

$17.95

Intersections of Grace grew out of a series of devotional talks delivered to Susan’s Bible Study group. After much encouragement from the women in the group , she turned these talks into a collection of written essays and prayers. God’s word, nature, pets, travel, and daily life inspired the writings. Over the years, as a student of the Bible, Susan has witnessed many manifestations of God’s Grace. These essays beautifully express Susan’s belief that if we are only attentive, we may see the intersections of God’s Grace at every step of our journey.
