ABOUT THE AUTHOR Pastor Edmunds is interested in seeing the hidden meaning beyond the outward appearance of things. He sees the things, often taken for granted in life, as informative beyond their surface. He shows us that these things have the potential to open us to deeper levels of spiritual comprehension. Over the many years of his pastoral work, he has helped people find their spiritual potential and expression through spiritual reflection and personal action. Pastor Edmunds espouses that it is t eugh to simply grasp God's goodness for oneself, but we must exercise that realization in our daily lives. He has learned to appreciate the self help aspect of biblical application of the Word of God to daily living.
