When I heard Chieko Okazaki had passed away earlier this month, my first glance was to my bookshelf where I saw the two origami cranes she made out of gold foil paper and presented to me during the one interview I had with her. When you hear what the symbolism of those cranes is, you'll know why I've kept them and why they are so meaningful to me.
In the few short joyful moments I had to interview her about her final book, "What a Friend We Have in Jesus" (a book whose title could sum up her life), she gave me several gifts: two golden cranes, one cryptic little wooden sign I treasure and an increased desire to know Jesus in the way she did and now, surely, does.
I can think of no better way to thank her for those gifts than to let you hear her tell about that relationship in her own voice.
That's this week on The Cricket and Seagull.
