"This article offers a forceful counter to . . . temptation, guiding us toward life-affirming prayer."

Channing Walker's article "Because Life loves you" (May 22) was wonderful! Tremendously powerful and clear in its spiritual assertion of the direct relation between Life and Love, of loving life and living love. This applies not only to physical suicide but also to the many other times we feel inclined to choose death instead of Life. Many times we are tempted to perceive ourselves (or others) as trapped by circumstances—at work, within our family, or in society—a situation that seems so dominant or overwhelming or real, that we are tempted to simply resign ourselves to it. Such resignation is a form of death, a belief that portions of our experience can be devoid of God, of creativity, of vitality, of love, of life. This article offers a forceful counter to such temptation, guiding us toward life-affirming prayer.
