Happy is the man who has lived life well.
Content is he whose life has been well lived.
The meaning of life and the secret to the meaningful life
lay in the difference between the two.

– JMC

The journey to meaning is christened in pain, sustained in longing,
refined in trial,
and concluded in love.

Book Reviews:

“His insight ... rings humbly and true ... Rich in metaphor, Mending of a Broken Heart is heartfelt, poetic, and beautifully written, offering wise reflections on the nature of life, death, suffering, and trying to find our way through an often-challenging world. Readers of Robert Wicks, C.S. Lewis, and Henri Nouwen, will find much to appreciate here.”

“graceful” ... “an elegant and weighty theological memoire”. Kirkus

“A search for answers to timeless questions leads to enlivening theology from a lay perspective ... Familiar concepts are eloquently drawn to show the need for God ... Nearly aphoristic gems reveal a talent for distilling complexity. The theme of agape ... build[s] a case for seeing others from a radical perspective ... God is portrayed in the multifaceted and challenging way that the topic deserves.”

In Part 1, we learned that Jesus’ suffered in the garden of Gesthemane, not as God, but as a man, and revealed just how severe His was. In Part 2, we discovered the resources Jesus brought to bear to triumph over temptation. In this Part, we’ll look at why the disciples failed in their own Garden temptation for insights into why we so often fail in ours, and then close with some thoughts about what we can do to better cope with trial.
