Wow, I guess I am a little ashamed because you seemed to write all that just for me, especially considering that I started off by provoking you a little.

I remember when I separated from my wife and had to leave my child. I wasn't sure who was suffering more me or my son. I couldn't bear the thought of failing at the one most important thing a man can be, a father. Anyway, I started attending this interesting church, Willow Creek, you may have heard of it. I met a woman who for whatever reason wanted to lead me to the Lord. She drove 40 miles from Chicago each week to meet with me at a restaurant where we could read the Bible together. This eventually ended when I began a relationship with a woman at work and I felt somewhat hypocritical studying under these circumstances. But what I wanted to tell you is this Christian's faith was so powerful and infectious. She was a probation officer in Chicago for some of the most dangeous kids imaginable. I asked her how she had the courage to walk into the gang infested projects to confront these families. She told me that her faith gives her a belief that whatever happens is God's will, although I cant remember how she exactly put it. You can't fake that kind of courage or that kind of faith. Though not a believer, I envy anyone who has found peace in this life.
