The Problem of Evil
A perfectly good God exists, and evil exists. This is a challenging enigma to contemplate and understand.

Loving to Life Pt 4
VISIONING This is one of my favorite things to do – visioning for the possibilities of the future. I have said before that I do much better in bigger picture planning and thinking than I do when it comes to the minor details. The details are important.
