How do you view the miraculous? I’ll say that I tend to be skeptical, although supernatural things have happened to and through me. But they certainly don’t occur every day. Such events have been the exception rather than the rule in my forty years of walking with Jesus.

Here it is 2009!

What I’m about to tell you is not my fault.It’s not something I concocted or dreamed up. Nor is it the result of my theology or some apocalyptic worldview.
