As a teen-ager, I found myself at odds with the religious doctrine preached from the church pulpit in the small midwestern town where I was growing up. Hellfire and damnation didn't fit my concept of God. I intuitively felt that compassion was more characteristic of God's nature.

One night after I had had a lengthy discussion on this subject with a person whom I greatly respected, I lay awake struggling and praying. Reaching out to God, I asked to be delivered from my constant questioning and confusion. At the height of my mental anguish, the room suddenly seemed filled with light. A passage from Psalms came to thought, forcefully, as though someone were speaking to me (138:8 ): "The Lord will perfect that which concerneth me." I was left with the most marvelous sense of peace.
