Walter Wangerin, Jr., a Lutheran Pastor, has been one of my favorite authors for many years. I've read just about everything he has written. I was pleased to find a you tube video of him reading one of his most popular stories. I couldn't wait to share it with you.
He has been a professor at Valparaiso University, Valparaiso, Indiana since 1991, where he teaches literature, theology, creative writing, and is writer-in-residence. Wangerin is the author of over thirty novels, numerous children's books, plays, and holds many awards for his short stories and essays.
Click the link below to hear the story of "The Ragman" as told by Walter. I hope it touches you that way it touched me when I first read it.
Blessings of joy to you and yours today-
