Anyone who has lost a loved one knows that platitudes are never enough to provide comfort and healing in a time of grief. The authors in this week's focus have all faced loss—of a mother, a husband, an aunt—and they write honestly of sorrows and questions they struggled with and of the answers they received through their prayers.
If you haven't thought about linking health and hospitality, you might want to take a look at the article with this title. It speaks not just of regeneration but of physical healing, which was brought about as a Christly attitude toward dinner guests developed in the thought of the hostess.
"Self-forgiveness" speaks of how Peter, Christ Jesus' disciple, was able to forgive himself for his betrayal of the Master and to carry out the fledgling church's mission. It makes the point that we, too, can forgive ourselves for past mistakes and go forward with hope.
