As a Christian, I believe that (a) we are all broken and in need of a Savior, and (b) that Jesus Christ is God's perfect sacrifice for our brokenness. I have been a Christian most of my life, but the context of my faith has changed over the course of time. While I may not always understand why God allows his people to suffer, I hold true to my faith that he is powerful enough to sustain us through the struggles of life. I am certainly not a theologian, nor am I perfect in my application of the scriptures to the problems of everyday life. However, I try my best to seek the will of the Lord in my work with clients, challenging them to live worthy of the high calling of God in Christ.
