Which Way the Wind Blows

Xulon Press, 2007 - 196 páginas
In 1976, Don and Judy Cremer, and their two very young children, moved into a Christian commune in an inner-city district of Portland, Oregon. Participants in a risky outreach experiment, they expected to experience "all things in common" with their co-habitants. But suddenly thrust into a myriad of both personal and corporate struggles, they unexpectedly discovered the "uncommon"-and often miraculous-protection and provision of God. Coping with dangers and dilemmas, and developing discernment of the "winds of the Spirit"-without being blown away by "every wind of doctrine"-has produced an indelible imprint of spiritual maturity in their lives. Written with delightful candor and authenticity, Judy's memoir allows us a peek over her shoulder, taking us back in time 30 years. Her story is just as compelling and relevant for today, as she touches on the Vietnam War era, Ford's presidency, the birth of the New Monastic Movement. Born in Portland, Oregon, Judith Cremer returned there at age 19, after meeting and marrying her husband, Donald, in California. It was there, in the midst of the "Jesus Movement" revival of the 1970s, they experienced the events chronicled in this memoir. Following her career as a retail store manager and paralegal during the 1980s and 90s, she now relishes the slower pace of life in the Arkansas Ozarks. She and Don have four grown children and six grandchildren, and one of their favorite pastimes is traveling around the country visiting them. They enjoy renovating their historic home and remain occupied working with various local ministries. For many years Judith wrote a monthly column in her church's newsletter, and has led and formatted women's Bible studies. Judith has numerous essays and short stories to her credit, dealing with current events, women's interest and Christian growth. This is her first book.
