Ssshh……the secret of Douglas

secretIn Douglas Coupland’s 1994 book- Life after God, he shared his “secret” with us. I pass it to you to ponder:

“Now- here is my secret. I tell it to you with an openness of heart that I doubt I shall ever achieve again, so I pray that you are in a quiet room as you hear these words. My secret is that I need God- that I am sick and can no longer make it alone. I need God to help me give, because I no longer seem capable of kindness; to help me love, as I seem beyond being able to love.”

I wonder if or why you know you need God and what secret you’d be willing to share?
