Join us Sat., Oct. 18, 5 – 7 pm, local author Michael Davis will sign his memoir Papa Was a Rolling Stone: Fathers of Charleston (West Bow, 204 pp., hb., $34).
“Finding my father was a wonderful feeling; forgiving him was even better. I have been set free, and now I can look at all the houses he built and the St. Louis arch in four states: South Carolina, Florida, Tennessee, and Missouri. There are footsteps that lead to manhood; the path was cut down by our fathers. But when there is no father, you must count on the Father above that will lead your path. Now I have the experience that God has laid before me in my life with no father. At fifty-two, with that experience, I must show others how to forgive and move on with their lives. As a spiritual leader in teaching divorce care and blended family classes at the World Outreach Church in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, I have tried to help people in forgiving others in their lives.”
MICHAEL A. DAVIS is a local author.
