Tales of Love and Service: Stories from the Heart, by John W. Gehring

United States-2021-09-18-Tales of Love and Service: Stories from the Heart, by John W. Gehring

New York, United States—John W. Gehring, former executive director of the Religious Youth Service (RYS), a project of UPF, recently published a book about his 20 years working with young people in more than 60 countries. Tales of Love and Service: Stories from the Heart is available on Amazon in digital or paperback. (https://www.amazon.com/Tales-Love-Service-Stories-Heart-ebook/dp/B096TB4C1B.) The podcast of John’s interview with Heather Thalheimer for Faith Fusion and book review by Cheryl Roth can be found here: (https://www.nhfaithfusion.com/2021/09/tales-of-love-and-service/). 

From Cheryl’s review:

“Love is the goal of all religions, but outdated traditions and dogma can cause us to lose sight of that. However, the barriers we build through concepts and labels lose power when we are faced with the serious needs of those who are suffering. Acts of selfless service are an expression of the divine love that has the ability to transform lives. John’s book is his legacy, and it will be a great teaching tool for many generations to come.”

The stories in the book are a great reminder that the barriers we build through concepts and labels lose power when we selflessly serve together for a greater cause.
