 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 Amazon.com 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
