Dr. Berecz has provided the following overview of his presentation:

"In a recent interview with Time magazine, J K Rowling described story
as 'making meaning out of chaos.' 'Angel Bones' is story ‹ my story ‹
about finding meaning in chaos. It¹s more about ³being found² than
finding. It¹s about how Sara (my moniker for Spirit) found me and
infused my personal chaos with meaning. Angel Bones is also about how
forgiveness saved my life and rehabilitated my self esteem. In sum:
three themes co-mingle in this personal narrative: Spirit, forgiveness,
and self-esteem.

Adventist Forum is open to the public.  All are welcome.  For
