After Shock author Kent Annan, “when Your World is Shaken”


Kent Annan is author of After Shock (2011) and Following Jesus through the Eye of the Needle (2009).

Kent is also co-director of Haiti Partners, a nonprofit focused on education in Haiti. He’s worked in Haiti since 2003–first living there and now traveling there regularly from Florida, where he lives with his wife and two children.

*** *** *** ***

In the wake of a historic earthquake in the fragile country of Haiti, Kent Annan considers suffering–from the epic to the everyday–as a problem for faith. Less than two weeks after the release of Kent’s book about his work with Haiti Partners, he heard the news. Friends trapped under the rubble of buildings. Friends sprinting across the city looking for family. Churches–including one Kent often attended–turned to rubble. Suddenly Kent and his friends were part of an uncomfortable fellowship: people whose faith is shaken by crisis. Taking courage from the psalmists of old and the company of his grieving neighbors, Kent has found that there is solidarity in suffering. Others have followed life to the edge of meaning and have heard God even there, calling for honest faith.

Delicious Breakfast & Brunch Recipes from Strawberry Creek Inn B&B, Innkeeper Rodney Williams

Treat your holiday guests (or yourself) with a luxurious gourmet breakfast that is easy and quick. One of my favorite B&B innkeepers returns to the show to share a few recipes with us. Strawberry Creek Inn is a 10-room B&B and an 18-room boutique motel (the Strawberry Creek Bunkhouse) in Idyllwild, California. A quaint art and nature haven in the scenic San Jacinto mountains of Southern California, Idyllwild is the perfect nature and wildlife destination in the middle of the San Bernardino National Forest, and it also features scores of art venues, including the world-renowned Idyllwild Arts performing arts boarding school.

The B&B offers individually themed rooms that hearken to an earlier, simpler time, and the innkeepers–Rodney Wlliams and Ian Scott–continue that idea by keeping organic, free-range hens and honeybees on the property. The Inn is also known for its scrumptuous full gourmet breakfasts featuring local organic produce, along with fresh organic eggs and raw honey courtesy of the aforementioned hard-working mascots. The Strawberry Creek Bunkhouse features camping-themed rooms with knotty-pine interiors, private balconies overlooking the forest, and kitchenettes. The Bunkhouse offers a more family-friendly environment, and certain rooms are also designated as pet-friendly or allergy-friendly. A lovely gourmet continental breakfast basket is delivered to your room each morning at the Bunkhouse, complete with fresh-baked scones and lemon curd from the B&B kitchen, organic fruit, organic oatmeal, and fruit juice.

Be on the lookout for ‘Memorable Mornings’, a collection of recipes and tips for breakfast and brunch entertaining, due out soon from the Strawberry Creek Inn. Strawberry Creek Inn was the location for the upcoming independent film, From Grace. You can view the trailer here:
