Craig M. Edwards
From snowstorms to thunderstorms to beautiful blue skies, author Craig Edwards has been fascinated by the weather from an early age; so fascinated that his four brothers nicknamed him 'weather boy.' In this memoir, Edwards recounts his life growing up in the Midwest, his quest to understand the wonders of nature and his calling to forecast weather as a spiritual vocation.Having witnessed the signs of the sky and having experienced the changing climate as a meteorologist in the heartland for almost forty years, Edwards shares his views of the dramatically visible changes in weather patterns. Revealing his talents to read the signs of nature, Edwards expressed a keen awareness of the harsh consequences of disrespecting the environment.In this mixture of autobiography, spiritual guidance, and meteorological narrative, Nature’s Messenger discusses the moral consciousness of failing to revere the environment. We should be concerned not simply with the consequences of global warming; we must educate the next generation, so they may truly express care for the sustainability of creation.
