Last night another friend calls and his wife is also walking out.
Same night, another phone call. A “staunch” member of a church got dizzy while at church, fell and split his head open. Taken to the hospital, the fear was he’d had a stroke and had fallen as a result of the stroke. Turns out he’s been a closet alcoholic and he’d been “hitting the jar” that morning. He enjoyed helping out a church events and so came, as usual, “several sheets into the wind.”
Yet one more! A final phone call from a young girl, late twenties; her physican had just called her and told her she has genital herpes type 2 — a STD. She’s devastated.
What’s going on here?
All are Christians; all have nothing to work with.
Might it be that we need to be busy, not just helping folks find the Way, but helping them know how to walk it?
