About-

This book is a memoir of a minister and peace activist in partnership with a whimsical ant to show a lifetime of artifacts in a room that uncovers thinking about peace and justice issues, such as in the following themes:

• The values of Jesus and biblical evidence often give preference for insignificance and love for peace.

• A history of protests demonstrates against injustices and nuclear weapons.

• Disenfranchisement of democracy is like wiping out a colony of ants and tagging them with tiny obituaries.

• The end of life is a normal part of nature, and death shows up in layers to enhance the cosmos.

A Room Full of Shadows is a valuable resource for thinking deeper about our whimsical insignificance and finding peace in the shadows.

Endorsements & Reviews-

“In A Room Full of Shadows, Ron Faust gives us a creative autobiography of justice that also reaffirms the spiritual practice of noticing—noticing others, noticing ourselves, and noticing God. By sifting through the memories of his beloved sacred space, Faust uncovers new, old ways of engagement and asks you to consider how your own story is working for peace here and now.”

—Ryan Motter, Associate Minister, Community Christian Church, Kansas City, Missouri
