God s Patience

As Laura admits adultery to her husband, a merciless war erupts in their matrimony. The husband fails to function as a rational human any longer, as the knowledge of another man destroys his identity, awakening the murderer within him. The demon of jealousy causes obsessive rivalry between the husband and the lover, causing Laura to rediscover truth and values. In the house next door, a Bosnian Muslim experiences same drama globally, as a cruel war, ethnic cleansing, massacre, and systematic mass rape is happening in her homeland, to her very own people. The two women merge into one and undergo transformation of their spiritual and physical identity through tragedy in which male ego destroys and creates the world. Devaluation of values and hypocrisy of civilization cause the women to rebel and search for ultimate truth and justice. This combination of diary prose containing features of an urban love story is wrapped up in a deep, intimate rhythm of the self-enticed prayers of a modern woman, who is in search of ultimate strength and higher meaning of existence with both flowers and thorns she has to find meaning in.

Join the journey that can lead you closer to the still, small voice that hovers near your bandaged places, looking for where the light can get in.” Beyond a business memoir, this is a vulnerable, compelling story of one woman’s response to God when He started talking to her, and the difference this made in her personal life, her career, and business.

Patience with God

Using the gospel story of Jesus’s encounter with Zacchaeus, Halík issues an invitation to all people who stand (like Zacchaeus did) on the sideline—curious but noncommittal.

Patience with God

For all the debate about belief and nonbelief in today’s world—and how everyone becomes pigeonholed by one or the other— Tomáš Halík teaches that God requires us to persevere with our doubts, carry them in our hearts, and allow them to lead us to maturity. For Halík, patience is the main difference between faith and atheism. Faith, hope, and love are three aspects of patience in the face of God’s silence, which is interpreted as “the death of God” by atheists and is not taken seriously enough by fundamentalists. Using the gospel story of Jesus’s encounter with Zacchaeus, Halík issues an invitation to all people who stand (like Zacchaeus did) on the sideline—curious but noncommittal. The fact that Jesus gravitated to the poor and the marginalized means that he also has a special place in his heart for diligent seekers on the margins of the community of believers.

The Patient in Room Nine Says He s God

A young Jewish doctor prays to a coma patient's Blessed Mother on Christmas Eve, only to have the woman suddenly awakened; there is the voice that tells a too-busy ER doctor to stop a patient walking out, discovering an embolus that would have killed him. The late-night passing of a beloved aunt summons a childhood bully who shows up minutes later, after twenty-five years, to be forgiven and to heal a broken doctor. This ER doctor finds God's opposite in: a battered child's bruises covered over by make-up, a dying patient whose son finally shows up at the end to reclaim the man's high-top sneakers, the rich or celebrity patients loaded with prescription drugs from doctor friends who end up addicted. But, his real outrage is directed at our cavalier treatment of the elderly, If you put a G-tube in your 80-year-old mother with Alzheimer's because she's no longer eating, you will probably have a fast track to hell.

Patience A Theological Exploration

What does it mean to exercise patience?

Patience   A Theological Exploration

What does it mean to exercise patience? What does it mean to endure, to wait, and to persevere-and, on other occasions, to reject patience in favor of resistance, haste, and disruptive action? And what might it mean to describe God as patient? Might patience play a leading role in a Christian account of God's creative work, God's relationship to ancient Israel, God's governance of history, and God's saving activity? The first instalment of Patience-A Theological Exploration engages these questions in searching, imaginative, and sometimes surprising ways. Following reflections on the biblical witness and the nature of constructive theological inquiry, its interpretative chapters engage landmark works by a number of ancient, medieval, modern, and contemporary authors, disclosing both the promise and peril of talk about patience. Patience stands at the center of this innovative account of God's creative work, God's relationship with ancient Israel, creaturely sin, scripture, and God's broader providential and salvific purposes.

Seven Truths About Patience

If we are saying, “Things will be better when God answers this prayer, or when He answers in a certain way,” we are living in the land of want or not enough.

Seven Truths About Patience

If we are saying, “Things will be better when God answers this prayer, or when He answers in a certain way,” we are living in the land of want or not enough. God wants us to prove that He alone is enough before the answer comes. He wants us to prove Him as our source in the now. Waiting well is knowing deep down inside that our life, our joy, and our provision, and all that we need is in God alone – not in what we are waiting for. So let’s be patient and ask God to help us to wait well. Let’s leave behind anything that slows us down or holds us back, especially those sins that trip us up. So run with patience.
