To Our Readers

Potential: The Opportunity and capacity to be more than we are. We all have it. Even a caterpillar has it. After all, it will become a butterfly. From its cocoon on a tiny branch—the narrow confines of a small world—a monarch butterfly may eventually fly thousands of miles. It's a wonderful metaphor for the beauty, freedom, and ability that is within everyone.

Contributing editor Richard Bergenheim writes this week from his own experience and spiritual observations. He helps us see how to get beyond the "I'll never be able to do it" frame of thought to a spiritually based approach to life built on our individual relationship to God. He affirms, "A life that is conscious of God as being with us is a life that succeeds." And he also points to the tremendous implications and lessons in the New Testament promise: "I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me."

The Cover Story is titled, "Unlimited potential is yours now." And so are the God-given opportunity and capacity to fulfill it.
