  • Have you experienced great loss in your life, like a death in the family or financial troubles?
    I am sure you have and have asked God, “Why me?”
    Personal suffering is part of life but as Christians, aren’t we just clay in the potter’s hands? Right now I know a lot of people are suffering, especially due to the economic situation locally and nationally.  I believe sometimes we go through bad circumstances to have a closer relationship with our creator.

  • I wrote a column a few weeks ago questioning why I do not see American Christians fasting, or why it is not more a part of our culture.
    I was blessed to get some rewarding feedback from one of my readers, “Pat,” and would like to share some of her experiences that I find inspiring.
    These are her words, not mine, and I hope you may find it interesting and perhaps useful in your own spirituality, and perhaps adopt fasting as a part of your own walk with God.
