The Goodness of God In recent years my shoulders have bent under near-deadly blood clots, diagnosis with terminal tumors, a divorce, a sellout of my business, and the sight of my first gray hairs! Yet, sixteen years ago, this lifelong cautious believer had an experience that greatly comforted myself and my wife during the hell of our sick, penniless first pregnancy. It let me feel God’s love for the first time and in a lasting way. By affirming the very basics of my faith to my heart, this event also freed my mind to face troubling facts and ideas. Here and now, I will speak of God, love, and faith. The ‘troubling facts and ideas’ will have to wait.
