Item description for When Little Became Much: A Journey from Obscurity to Significance by Clifton L. Taulbert...
Overview When a small book by the name of Once Upon a Time When We Were Colored tumbled out upon the table of public scrutiny, author Clifton Taulbert had no idea how God would use his small offering.
Like the boy with five loaves and two fishes, a brown-bag lunch in the hands of Jesus became a feast of contentment and hope for thousands.
In this simple telling of how unknowing obedience to God had a global impact upon untold numbers of lives, Clifton Taulbert once again shares the themes of life and faith and hope that transformed his future.
No matter how small an offering you have, when you follow that God-nudge in your heart, you will begin a journey that takes little and turns it into much. From Glen Allan, Mississippi, to the Capitol building and beyond the seas, follow author Clifton Taulbert?s story of what God can do with a small bag of food for the hungry heart.
Community Description Author Clifton Taulbert was born in the Mississippi Delta at the end of World War II during the era of legal segregation. It was from his great-aunt Elna's small front room window that he saw the world and within her bedroom that he experienced her faith. In When Little Became Much, he chronicles the lives of the the "porch people" - ordinary people who used their front porches to welcome neighbors, hold informal meetings, and yes, to dream about their future. It was on the front porch that he experienced an incredible sense of community. God showed up in the unselfishness of the ordinary people who became extraordinary leaders. Hardcover.
