 After a thirty year career as a college administrator, I was invited to serve local churches as a preaching lay pastor. For the next fourteen years, I shared a meditation with my congregations nearly every week. Those sermons were later posted in a blog titled Contemporary Parables which is still followed by readers all over the world.  More recently, I edited the Parables and taped them for a local radio station as one minute inspirational messages. In 2019, those radio Parables were published in both Kindle and paper back books, and both versions are now available on for $5.95. Contemporary Parables in all formats are intended to be a blessing and a source of strength, courage and inspiration. Let it be so.  Bruce Westerdahl
