In next week’s In The Spirit column, I should like to enumerate four such God-given “principles” that come quickly to mind, “principles” that have stood me in good stead during my entire life of faith. Meanwhile, I wish you well in your continuing search for a meaningful faith community, if you don’t already have one, which will help you find and be and become what God wants you to find and be and become in this often challenging and unexpected life journey of ours.
