“The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation.” Henry David Thoreau deftly identified humanity’s heartache, his need. Still today, many seem trapped in a fog of darkness, shallow, pointless groping. . .mired in external trials, endless complaining . . . little depth of soul. . . lacking inner peace, inner joy to share with the needy. Jesus’ remedy: “I came that they might have life, and might have it abundantly.” (John 10.10 NAS).
