In We ... a spirit seeking harmony for a world that's out of sync, she takes the reader on a faith journey modeled after that of the prophet Isaiah, yet sets it in the absolute present. Tears flow through her tellings of pain so personal we think they are our own.
And perhaps they are. But "We" never leaves us alone, offering possibilities in the communion of family, friends and a God that burns us with His healing fire.
Even ‘non-poetry readers’ will find the text in “We” as natural and readable as prose, beautiful, even while the poems reveal the tragedies that befall us in this world. With Ms. Kirk’s assistance, we travel from grief and pain to hope and purpose. Through the chapter headings ‘out of sync’, ‘who will go?’, ‘coal to my lips’, ‘send me’, and ‘go,’ she reminds us that no matter what we have lived through, we are never so broken that we cannot go and minister to another in need.
