To Our Readers

Choice. For most of us it means freedom. Freedom to choose where to live, what to do, whom to associate with. Choice also includes more fundamental issues—like determining the way we think, and what we believe in.

Some choices are trivial, others affect our life deeply.

There are times, however, when it seems that we don't have any choice. Life comes our way and brings happiness or misery. At least this is the way we sometimes see it. But the fact is, we can always side for what gives our life depth and meaning. In fact we can choose life over what seems to hide from us its beauty, freshness, and continuity.

In our cover story, Ruth Elizabeth Jenks speaks of the capacity we all have to make the right choice—to turn away from what is, in fact, just a misconception, and to choose life, the life God has given each one of us, in all its fullness and perfection. This is a privilege we all have. Let's exercise it.
