          Once upon a time, there were two people, who were very much in love.   Unfortunately, their studies at college took them far apart, one studying on the East Coast and the other on the West Coast.  This was some time ago, before cell phones, computers and the internet, and even before regular telephones, which we now call “land lines.”...

          The reason I say that is that Ezekiel had the demanding job...

Several events of recent weeks which haunt us all led me to give thought to how Jesus has responded to questions about evil and suffering in the world.  The mysterious disappearance of the Malaysian airliner, on what appeared to be a routine flight, is an event likely to cause us all heartache and grief.   It is hard not to picture ourselves possibly being on such a flight....
