The very best of this kind of first-person radio.
The first piece, the audio journal of a young pastor in Chicago, is the strongest. I was transported into the church and into Susan Johnson's world. In a beautiful patchwork of sounds, voices, music and reflection we can hear a young woman straining to hear the call of God as she goes about the disparate activities of ministering to an urban community. Jay Allison's Life Stories Collection are a rare radio treat. They could air as an extended series at any time.
