Illness in the Church

I must be honest, guys, my heart burns with passion and indignation on this subject, which is why it has taken me a while to write this post.  I knew I would have to be very careful with my words, not only because of my own personal experiences with this topic, but also because I can hear the voices of many echoing in my mind.  In fact, recently there has been an increase of people who have come to me with tears in their eyes because they have been told their faith “just isn’t strong enough”, and that is why I can now no longer be silent.

Some of my readers know that I spent the night before my sixteenth birthday in the ER.  What would follow was two years of living through a very traumatic and debilitating condition and being subjected to much medical analysis.  But this post is not really about that.  Rather, this post is being written because of some of the statements made to me during this time, by the church, which I now see other young men and women unfairly, and often ignorantly, subjected to.

Full Schedule

I promise, I really haven't abandoned the blog.  Life's just been crazy and a lot is going on in my life.  As much as I love sharing stuff with you guys, the blog is a lower priority.  Don’t lose hope, though, I have all sorts of ideas for the blog playing around in this head of mine.

So, why am I posting a "blog post" about this instead of just leaving the blog sit until I have something to post for you all?  Well, two reasons.  Firstly, I thought this would be a good time to let you guys know about some of the things I’m planning for the blog.  Sort of a backstage pass type of thing, if you will.  

Secondly, because I want to open the floor to you guys.  More on that later, though.  First, let's look at what I’m cooking up for the near future.
