A Change is in the Air is author Nancy Hall’s eighth book, a collection comprising ten of her commentaries and short stories, a collection which vividly paints a picture of the world around her based upon her keen observations, her sometimes difficult life experiences, and her strong devotion to God.
As a strong woman of God and a passionate defender of the rights of the downtrodden, Nancy is fearless in expressing her bold opinions against injustice. For example, in “I am Going to March Until Hell Freezes Up,” she states:
“We serve a God who never changes. He sits down at the table without a lace tablecloth and wipes His mouth on a paper towel. He treats a preacher no better than He treats a janitor. God won’t make you feel cheaper; and that is why I am not going to shed a tear, nor feel any fear, nor show my weakness. I am going to show how strong I am, not by turning over a building and cars, not by fist-fighting with the cops. Instead I am going to show my strength by marching until Hell freezes up. Our rights and our food stamps, along with our Medicaid, will no longer be tampered with.”
As another example of her strength and her devotion to God, in “I am Going to Send an Email to Hell,” Nancy makes clear to Satan himself:
“There is no fire escape down in Hell; but where Jesus is you don’t have to be afraid. When God is in Control you’ll hear joy, bells ringing, and choirs singing; but those who are down in that dark hole are going to be licking their teeth, wishing for water to cool their tongues. Your kind will be jammed into that one big, dark hole wishing for air. You are lying in that dark hole waiting for your second death. You cannot get out. You had your chance and you blew it. Mister Satan, I am emailing you to let you know that my life is in God’s Hands. And you can’t pluck me out of His Hands.”
These and many more strong words by a strong and bold woman of God fill the pages of this powerful and thought-provoking book.
