Writers are funny. We are outraged when someone uses a quote without citing our name as a reference, and we will defend to the death our copyrights, yet we are pleased to see people reading and sharing our work.
A friend recently had to give a devotion to a group. He readGrace and discussed the book of Philemon, a letter in the Bible from Paul to the owner of a runaway slave. Grace is a short story I posted 6/3/11 in which I used my imagination to say what might have happened when Onesimus, the slave, delivered Paul’s letter to Philemon.
I am pleased that he could be inspired by and make use of my story.
