In this day and age, when so many Christians (or just those who call themselves Christians), are obnoxious, mean-spirited, and generally give Jesus a bad reputation, it's nice to hear that sommeone just had the courage and integrity to live our her faith and love for Him, and to let it show...

It IS astonishing what any of us will do, or risk, or give, when we're invaded by Him who alters hearts and minds, and lives. I know I'm not the same woman I once was... and that's a GOOD thing!

I'm very impressed by your own heart, Toph (and, I didn't feel the slightest bit provoked by your previous post... you wrote honestly, and I repond to that better than I do to "correct, careful and hyper-religious" words...).

Your last line, "Though not a believer, I envy anyone who has found peace in this life," spoke to me...

I dare to say (& believe) that He who put that yearning for peace within you, hears you... and wants that peace for you even more than you want it for yourself...!

May you find it, and Him... in whatever way He chooses to reveal Himself. May He meet you where you are, and give you what you need.

(P.S. Yes, I'm familiar with Willow Creek church, and Bill Hybels - I've heard some good things coming from there, though I'm in a home church environment now... He leads us where He wants us.)
