On Tuesday Lucy and I met with a young Christian who happens to be an MD and his brother who is suffering from brain cancer.  He wanted to discuss human suffering an the the love of God and how to try to to teach his brother.  The brother was there but suffering from cognitive issues as a result of the surgery.  I was so touched and humbled by all of this.  Lucy, who has some real challenges in her life worked diligently to arrange the study with these people who have such personal challenging questions.  I was ashamed of what we so often superficially perceive to be problems and the simplistic answers that come what is passed off as leadership.  May God have mercy on us.
