Human beings are spiritual creatures. We need to be connected to one another and to our Creator to be healthy in spirit. Yet what do we see today? The modern world denies, even destroys spiritual connections. Widespread loneliness and discontent and increasing violence show that society has become spiritually sick and disconnected. The mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, less than twenty miles from where the authors live, highlighted this tragic situation. What can we do? We must face these challenges, connect with those around us and with God, and help one another find inner peace.
