Item description for The Sewing Room : Uncommon Reflections of Life, Love, and Work by Barbara Cawthorne Crafton...

Overview
In these insightful essays, Barbara Cawthorne Crafton reflects on a broad range of experiences ministering among merchant seafarers, the homeless, the bereaved, AIDS patients, and others in need of personal and spiritual help. She shares honestly her own emotions as she grapples with the harsh realities of the world, while delighting in the humor and joy found in everyday living. Crafton compassionately recounts the unique stories of the men, women, and children she worked with during her service as a port chaplain in New York and New Jersey and as a minister at Trinity Church on Wall Street. In doing so, she weaves together threads of the mundane and the traumatic, the lovely and the ugly, and the down to earth and the holy, creating an original tapestry of the richness of life.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Sewing Room : Uncommon Reflections of Life, Love, and Work?

Wow  Aug 26, 2001
This book is fantastic. In her simple, straightforward and lucid style, Reverend Barbara Crafton shares several stories drawn from her personal and ministerial lives. The stories are brief, their impact is not. She has a unique gift for being able to see the grace and meaning in simple incidents and to convey it without getting in the way. Although I loved all of them, the one about the eggs and the one entitled "Men are Delicate" especially touched me. A wonderful book.
 
My favorite book!  Sep 1, 2000
This book is quite simply the best book I've ever read. It is a series of essays about everyday things and events, written in such a way that you will be entertained, provoked to thought, amused, deeply moved. The writing style is plain and straight-forward and extremely clear and effective. Almost everyone to whom I have recommended this book has read it and then bought it. In fact, many of its readers have bought it for their family and friends - I know I have!
 
It is simply the most uplifting book I've ever read.  Sep 16, 1999
My wife and I have been honored to call Barbara our friend; nevertheless, we apply no bias in expressing our love of this book. Barbara fills her books with uncommon wisdom and heart-on-her-sleeve humanity. Without fail, every story she relates makes me glad for having read it, even when the subject matter is grim. Anyone needing a boost of their spirits would do well to turn to any page of this book, and take in what Barbara has to share.
 
A Great Book!  Jun 17, 1999
This is similar to a 'Chicken Soup for the Soul' book. It's a collection of warm, spiritual, and sad stories. Recommended! Expresses the rewards of goodwill to all.
