day 24: book you could live in

The Mitford Series by Jan Karon are heartwarming books about Father Tim Cavanagh, an Espiscopal priest who serves in a small town in the Blue Ridge Mountains. In my favorite of the books (the last book of the series), Light from Heaven, Father Tim is actually retired but is asked to try to revive a mountain church that has been closed for years. It is a story about a calling that reaches beyond "retirement" and about serving a community in a place that had power and meaning for it years before.

I could live that. I hope to live that.
