"Am your host. Sarah and I hope you have had a wonderful weekend and a beautiful Sunday. The weather was gorgeous here today so cannot complain about that. Too much. Today is The sixth Sunday after of Easter. But it's also showed a good shepherd Sunday which is the. It's called the Good Shepherd Sunday because all the texts reference shepherds in some way we read Psalm Twenty three which is of course the Lord is my shepherd and I wanted to do something a little bit different this time still doing dealing with good shepherd And that is that recently. I interviewed a dear friend of mine on the. Gmc Book View podcast. And she an a her dear friend. Just wrote a book called Morris somewhere out there. It is a children's book and it is based on the story of the good shepherd it is really sweet and I thought it would be fun to share on this good at shepherd a Sunday before we get to that. Let's go ahead and read the Gospel text for this week. Just so we get one version of the Good Shepherd story another version that you might be familiar with. Is The story of the shepherd who leaves the ninety nine to go after the lost sheep. And you'll see elements of that in the Morris Book. Today's good shepherd story though comes to us from the Gospel of John Chapter Ten verses one through ten Jesus said very truly I tell you anyone who does not enter the sheet pulled by the gate but climbs in by another way is a thief and abandoned. The one who enters by the gate is the shepherd of the sheep. The gatekeeper opens the gate for him and the sheep hear his voice. He calls his own sheep by name and leads them out when he has brought out all his own he goes ahead of them and the sheep follow him because they know his voice they will not follow a stranger but they will run from him because they do not know the voice of strangers. Jesus used this figure of speech with them but they did not understand what he was saying to them so again. Jesus said to them very truly I tell you. I am the gate for the sheep. All who came before me are thieves and bandits but the sheep did not listen to them. I am the gate. Whoever enters by me will be saved and will come in and go out and find pasture? The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came they may have life and have it abundantly and again. That is John Chapter Ten verses one through ten just one of a multiple examples of Jesus as the Good Shepherd in the Bible and that is our Gospel Reading for Good Shepherd Sunday so I am going to turn this episode over now to my interview with Penny Wally With comments from a KIRK CO author. Deborah O'Neill who was not able to join us for that interview but was able to submit some written answers. I hope you enjoy the episode. I am excited because I m enter interviewing a very good friend of mine today and I've had people on the podcast before that have been friends and acquaintances and and I've loved every time. I'm always amazed at how many people I know who have written books. I think that's so cool. I don't know it's like a come from environment that appreciates books or something. I'm excited about today's interview. Because this author Penny. Walden is the one that I have known the longest. So originally that record was held by Camille Group and Juliette Cutler both of whom I met The same summer when we all worked at the same Lutheran Bible camp together but now I am interviewing penny. Wally and I have known her. I don't even know how old I was She and her husband were at her husband. Was the intern at the Lutheran. Church attended growing up. And that was you know something like eight million years ago. I don't remember I should know this. Was I junior? High was earlier than that. At any rate they then came back after Joel. Her husband graduated from seminary and he was our pastor for awhile so He was the pastor. Who MARRIED MY SISTER AND BROTHER-IN-LAW? Penny was by high school volleyball coach. I come I lived in in a very small town growing up. So there's all kinds of crossover in connection and I babysat their kids. They have three and just lots of connection. My parents and I used to have A. I don't even know regular monthly. Maybe maybe they're more sporadic than that. Bowie would have pizza and movie nights penny makes really amazing homemade pizza so we would have pizza and movie nights and we would all hang out and it was just a lot of fun a definitely miss that. I haven't seen penny since A friend of ours weddings six years ago. I think that was and before that it had been even longer so it was really great to talk to her and catch up a little bit and just see what's going on in her life and also to talk about her book. I'm sort of laughing this week because we're on opposite ends of the spectrum with the books Tuesday was an adult thriller. I know where you sleep. Suspense today is a children's book about a sheep. Kind of mischievous sheep named Morris. The book is called Morris somewhere out there and it is by penny and her friend. Deborah O'Neill unfortunately Deb was not able to join us for this interview. She did send in answers to the questions though. So we're able to incorporate those in to the conversation We we missed her but we understood that she was not available to be with us at this time. Let me go ahead and give you the description of the book. It is called Morris. Somewhere out there Morris. The fun loving lamb believes life is more exciting outside the pen. He disregards the rules that norm the shepherd presents. To the heard that morning Morris also ignores all the warnings from norm his sheep friends and his newfound companion. Beau peep finding a place where the fence post has fallen down. Morris jumps over the broken fence and escapes the safety of the pen to find what he thinks is greener grasped. Morris is totally unaware of the dangers. And he ignores surroundings to satisfy his own wishes. The Wolf whose name is flow Wolf. Spelled backwards lurks around the fence. Line of the pen and is ready to snatch this carefree lamb thankfully. The Good Shepherd is always guarding his sheep and is mindful of where they are at all. Times norm the shepherd. Our hero in the story is willing to do what is needed to rescue his beloved sheep Morris. What a Glorious Day it is when Morris is brought back safely to the pen and the heard hopefully Morris has learned a valuable lesson about listening and following rules. That is the description of Morris somewhere out there by penny walled e and Deborah. O'neill they Both helped write the story and penny did the illustrations. Illustrations are bold and bright. And really fun. There's a couple of things that I really loved about this book. I it rhymes and I'm a big Fan of Dr Seuss and Shall Silverstein. So you know a good rhyming book you can read with. Your Kiddos is always fun. Second as are the pictures as I mentioned. They're they're they're so much fun. And so bright and eyecatching and then third is that you notice that free is good shepherd in there and this is based on the Good Shepherd Story of Jesus in the New Testament. But you don't have to know the Bible you don't have to be Christian to enjoy this book..

"Sarah and I hope you're having a wonderful week so far coming off of a great weekend I just spent A little over a week on jury duty. It was my first time ever sitting on a jury. It was a criminal trial. We reached a verdict. I'M NOT GONNA go into detail tale about the case but it was equal parts interesting and insanely boring. That's all I can say about that Sometimes yeah it was. It was interesting at other points it was like poof. I mean I knew it wasn't going to like it was on TV. But wow I wasn't expecting the my coffee is not strong enough for this bottom portion of the trial at any rate it is Tuesday and we have an author interview as says usual. This author is Well a former coworker of mine. Her name is Juliet Cutler. And it's it's kind of strange. Hey it's kind of strange. How many people I know who have written books and who have been coming on the podcast? I think that's amazing that I have so many writer and author friends in my relatively small circle of acquaintances. It's also interesting for me to have spoken with Juliet yet about her book because we were together over twenty years ago at a Lutheran summer camp in Montana. I may have spoken about it before. I don't even know so. We knew each other for ten weeks one summer in nineteen ninety seven. I think maybe ninety the eight think it worked there ninety seven and ninety eight so ninety seven probably and I have not seen her since you know our lives took us in different directions directions in fact before we started recording. We spent some time catching up. You know incredibly briefly on the last twenty three years since we not quite right twenty three years but over twenty years since we last saw each other and so it's strange to have a conversation with someone that you knew in a very specific setting for a very brief time breath and then over twenty years later have a conversation so you know you kind of know them but not really at any rate it was. It was a lot of fun to catch up with Juliet and to talk about this book which I found fascinating and you might be thinking to yourself. Would you just tell me the name of the book please. And Yes yes I shall. The book is called among the MASCI. It is a memoir of that. It is by Juliet Cutler. In one thousand nine hundred nine Juliette Cutler leaves the United States to teach at the first school from SL girls in East Africa marking the beginning of a twenty year journey to empower young Masci women. Through education working alongside local teachers cutler is transformed by the community she finds in Tanzania and by witnessing the life-changing impacts of education on her our students many of whom face staggering poverty forced marriages genital cutting and other forms of gender based violence. That is the description of this memoir. It covers those two years of teaching but also A lot of what has gone on in the in the twenty years since Since she started teaching there and her continued relationship with the school and her her evolving role in that relationship. I I found this book to be so fascinating a because it's calm again. Someone I knew very briefly and now I'm getting this glimpse into her life and a life that I didn't know much about but also because I didn't know a lot about the mass I I I know a little bit. He from readings here and there. But this gives a really good perspective on how their culture is changing because they are a nomadic society so how that is evolving as the world around them changes how is changing in terms terms of education especially educating girls and Juliet's perspective on that especially coming in as an outsider and and a white outsider. She she's so thoughtful conscientious of that role her role as a white American coming in being being perceived in a certain way her history. You know maybe not personally sleep but obviously the cultural history of of colonialism and how that affects a white person's relationship with with a colonized people she just does really masterful job of delving into all of these topics and bringing it together in a memoir are that is so engaging and so easy to read and experienced I say it reads almost like the novel. It's not quite a novel. But because she intertwines not only her story but The story of some of her students you get different aspects in different perspectives. And so you get a bit of those novel like qualities and I really really enjoyed. It and I learned a lot of from Tom this book. So let's go ahead and turn out to the interview with Juliet Cutler again. The book is among the Masci a memoir. Hi Juliet Eliot welcome to the PODCAST. Thank you so much for joining me. Thanks for having me Sarah. It is wonderful to have you here and I am excited to talk about your her memoir. It's called among them aside before we get to the memoir though if you could share just a little bit about yourself So my listeners can get to know you a bit that would be great. It sure My Name is Juliet Cutler and I currently live just outside of Atlanta in a small community called Sarah and be. That's that's focused on art the environment and culture so it's sort of an interesting place and then it's built around an organic farm as well I've lived lived a number of different places. I moved to Atlanta from Amsterdam where my husband and I lived for about six years. We've also lived in Minneapolis. Saint Paul and I grew up in Montana part of that. biography is is in the narrative of my memoir. But that's a little bit about who I am professionally. I work as a planner. Planner and writer for clients around the world developing educational programs and exhibits for places like national and State Parks Museums museums. Nature centers places like that. Wow that sounds like a really fascinating. I mean just from the overview sounds very interesting I We could probably have a whole long conversation just about your life but Since the book podcast. We'll the jump to. The book is a memoir. They said And it's called among them aside. So can you give a bit of an overview of the story right so the story is largely set Right at the twin at the turn of the twenty first century so I went over or just after I had finished my undergrad degree and I had I was partway through my graduate degree I came out of my Undergrad as a certified English. Josh teacher and I heard the stories of these young Maasai women who so desperately wanted to go to school that they would run away from. I'm home Show up on the doorstep of the Secondary School and beg for a place there The Maasai has historically herded cattle saddling goats in the Great Rift Valley. And I think as the twenty percents you wrote twenty-first-century approach Based a lot of changes to their historical land and water rights as well as encroachment of globalization and. I think these young women really saw education as a pathway to a better future and so I was really moved by those stories of these young women and their plight and volunteered to teach in east Africa for two years. I was there as a volunteer English teacher. And so this this memoir really tells the story of what it was like as a young American to go abroad To work there for two years in a culture that was radically different from from my own. It talks a lot about my transformation. The things that I learned from that process it also shares the stories of some of my students students and the issues that they faced as young Maasai Women So it's sort of a coming of age story in many ways The story continues continues through though really almost to the present in that it talks about what it was like to come back to the United States and then sort of paint the picture of what this school aw has achieved over the last twenty years in the transpiration of young women's lives who live on the margins where poverty the and and violence is very prevalent. We're going to go ahead and take our first break of the podcast when we come back we speaking about a young woman in the book who has certain parallels to Juliet's story so stay tuned.
