EDITOR’S NOTE: Readers may recall we are trying something a little different with our posts this month. The premise: Each staff writer pens a letter to someone they never met but wish they had. Perhaps a hero. Maybe a villain. Maybe someone never known to the larger world. Real or fictional. Alive or dead. Below is Part 4 of our 5-part series. You can find Letter #1 here , Letter #2 here, and #3 here. We hope you find our flights of fancy stimulating and provocative.
Sometimes it’s hard for me to realize that you were once on the earth as I am now; hard to believe, even.
You have accumulated greatness in the eyes of most Christians in my time and before, though I’m sure it was not your intention to be so glorified.
I can’t help but think it would be amazing to talk to you, to hear you preach, or receive a letter from you.
You would likely tell me what the Bible says about certain questions I have or things I’m doing that keep me from God’s will. And honestly that’s the best thing you could do for anyone; lead back to the source of life no matter the case. But, I won’t lie. It’s a bit infuriating at times. Sometimes my heart wishes there was another answer.
