Fasting and adopting special diets, seeking help from spiritual advisors, meditating, praying, reading the Bible. The search goes on. More and more people today are searching earnestly for spirituality and the peace and purpose it provides. As we reviewed the different approaches to spirituality that are so evident, we wanted to get at the question "What is spirituality, anyway?"
The writers who responded offer spirituality that has its roots in the Bible, yet is anything but abstract or remote. The spirituality of Christ is for all times—including our own. At its heart is pure love. It heals, refreshes, gives hope, and saves.
Also this week, in addition to the section of testimonies at the back of the magazine, you'll find specific examples of the healing Christ at work in "Finding real satisfaction" and "What's your selfimage?" And while it may seem a bit early for Christmas, it's never too early to experience God's love—which is what "Christmas is always here" is all about. "Finding our Father" also illustrates God's love in action, showing how a young man overcame loneliness and feelings of being disadvantaged after his parents divorced.
