One Sunday, a sister very dear to me runs up to me and tells me about a book she just finished reading that was heart wrenching. Now, my heart gets wrenched quite often as thanks to almost 20 years in CR, my empathy skills are well honed. She emphasized that once she had started reading the book she was virtually unable to put it down, completing it in one weekend.
It is hard to hear this and not have my curiosity piqued so she gratiously loaned me the book to read. She was right. It is a very hard book both to read and to put down.

It is not good for man to be alone (Gen 2:18). This is one of the first statements that God made about his creation as recorded in the Bible and how true it is. It is not good for us to be alone. One of the greatest fears that people face today is loneliness. Coming toward the twilight years of their lives with no one to spend it with. Having spent so much time and effort on pursuits that have availed them of nothing only to find out that they have cut off every single thread of friendship they ever had. Social sites like FaceBook and MySpace thrive because people need to have relationships with other people.

Having been a disciple for 21 years and in recovery for almost all of those years, I was now seeing myself being totally overcome with anger and rage. "Losing my Religion" with my wife and children was becoming a daily event. I was constantly feeling a black cloud of rage and confusion hanging over me. I was reading and praying every day and never missing a service. What was it that God wanted me to see?
One day coming home from work I went into a book store to find a book on Church History. To get to the religion section, I had to walk past the self-help books. The name of this book caught my eye. How many times had my wife told me that I never wanted to open up and have deep talks. I bought this book instead of the one on Church History as I was hoping this could give me some answers.
