About the Author
The author of the popular Questing Parson blog (www.questingparson.org), Guy Kent has demonstrated a unique ability to see what often others do not see, hear what others do not hear, and to find uncommon experiences in the common. While a retired elder of The United Methodist Church, he does not preach but shares stories that communicate eternal truths and challenge the heart. His blog is featured on the United Methodist Portal website. Guy Kent has served a variety of churches during his ministry, from rural Georgia circuits to an in-town church of Atlanta. Along the way he found ministry in the corporate world, as a Chaplain at Riverside Military Academy and a soccer coach. His eclectic experiences obviously inform his writings to provide his readers with a unique view of his theology and view of life. He is a columnist for The Calhoun Times, a bi-weekly periodical in Calhoun, Georgia. It is from those writings this book is compiled. Upon his retirement he was asked to supply the pulpit of the Farmville United Methodist Church in Calhoun, where he currently preaches each Sunday. When not pecking away on his laptop compiling his stories or seeking material for his tales via people watching around his community, he can often be found hiking the trails of the Northwest Georgia State Parks or studying the artifacts and civilizations of the early and middle Woodland Indians who, he believes, walked the same trails he hikes. Guy is the father of three children, the step-father of two, and the grandfather of eight. He is married to Lynn, known to his blog readers as Ms. Parson, and an accomplished stain glass artist. Another member of the family is Charlie Brown, his faithful canine companion.
