Blessed are the peacemakers, for their time on earth is often brief, but their legacies live on.
The otherworldly Elizabeth Bagby lives life with a much larger plan, and zips from one country to the next as if the whole world were one. Gathering Pecans is the story of a love affair with God that will possibly change your view of the world we now live in. From the cotton fields of Alabama to the hills of Afghanistan, the Bagbys, each generation more colorful than the next, give us a glimpse of the twentieth century, where we have been and where we hope to never return. From the events of Wwii to September 9, 2001, two days before the tragedy of 9/11, Gathering Pecans shows us how connected we all are whether we realize it or not, and enables us to take a peek inside the Afghanistan of the 90's. We find out how it was the Afghans harbored the evil Osama bin Laden, we fall in love with a man named Ahmad Shah Massoud, and we find ourselves asking if Jesus is really a universal figure belonging to the world and, if so, how do we make this a reality? Gathering Pecans is an endearing story with a timely message that will leave your head spinning and your mind pondering long after you've turned the last page. Interesting and powerful read. There are many paths to God. Love God. Love others. Live in grace and peace. Brent Bridges
