Examiner.com article: I love you, and I’m glad you’re not dead

I’ve published another article for Examiner.com as the Raleigh Practical Christianity Examiner. The article is called “I love you, and I’m glad you’re not dead.”

This article tells part of the story of an opportunity that we had to show the love of Christ to a resident of a local nursing home.

Here is an excerpt:

While we were talking about God, she started talking about her children again. She’s angry with God because “he took” her sons in separate automobile accidents when they were both twenty-one. She also has a daughter, but her daughter is not “good” like her sons, at least according to Ms. J.

She was almost in tears when she told me that her daughter once threw hot coffee in her face and yelled at her, “I hate you! I wish you were dead!”
