In case anyone mistakes the position from which I speak, let me say that I am struggling with Jesus' command. It is difficult to feel the presence of God and as much as I am making a convincing argument, I am trying to convince myself as much as anybody else.
This is a journey I am taking. Like many people, I seek fulfilment while trying to live up to the ideal of Christian love. I have sacrificed, and felt abused. I have sought my own goals, and found frustration and obstacles. Not unlike the Teacher in Ecclesiastes, I have found everything to be meaningless.
So, to those who have found my writing helpful, I am grateful that it has been so. But don't think I have the answers. My answers, as I write them, are what I am finding along the way. To those who have not, and who found my arguments faulty, know that I too have doubts about what I am saying. Yet, this is the journey I am taking. And I somehow need to give voice to it - I don't know why.
It's good to hear from my readers - whether they agree or not. Their voices help me to understand my journey more clearly. Those who agree have made the journey less lonely. And those who don't have made me stop and think more carefully.
Thank you all.
