  • Is God powerful?

    A few weeks ago, I got an email at work with the subject line: “Is God powerful?”
    I thought the email would be about God’s power, but it was a political come-on to people of faith to vote for a certain candidate, who supposedly was God’s choice and to please send money.
    Actually, the email lost me at “the great state of Pennsylvania is wrestling with its destiny,” since I live in Florida.
    Not that I don’t care what happens in Pennsylvania, but Florida has enough issues to keep me awake at night.
