    Dear Clarissa,

    I understand the challenges of being diagnosed and having to live with an in curable disease. But there is also no proof or evidence or indication that any of the many gods humans have worshipped have ever interceded in any human affairs.

    Ever.

    Dear Hutterite, Although people might pray for God to intercede in a football game, there is no proof that he has done so. It is possible, of course, but we don't know the mind of God. I asked myself when I was diagnosed with an incurable disease, why didn't God make me better. After a we minutes, I thought not "Why me, but why not?" I believe that I could have been cured, but it was not God's design. I have learned a lot from being sick and it has taught me compassion. As to the article, I thought it was wonderful. Such a great parallel between individual losing others, and not knowing where they are, and those who are also lost because they don't know who they are in the eternal sense. That is why we must never give up on the Lost who are living. Those in which lives can be changed by simple acts of kindness and works that will hopefully help them no longer be Lost.

    We haven't lost god. We wondered what kind of omnipotent, omniscient being, given credit for infinite love, looks down on the sufferings of humanity and decides to intervene...in football games. Is this an intelligent, grand design? No. It's cruel and capricious as a design, or much more likely, a lie.
