I’m a strong believer that there is a spiritual purpose behind everything that happens, whether that is what we perceive as being good or being bad.
You can have flaws, be anxious, and even be angry, but do not forget that your life is the greatest enterprise in the world.
As noted in my paper (recording above), HEEDING NATURE'S GOD, from the very outset I perceived a clear connection between climate change and covid-19. Just now on CNN it is observed that as a direct result of more people and things etc. being shuttered [quarantined so to speak] over the past month, the whole planet has cooled measurably! Nature, and Nature's God seem to be getting the worlds collective attention!
Rev. Dr. Colin Archer’s ministerial and professional career as a Bahamian Methodist Minister and Psychotheologian has been shaped primarily by his work in many churches in Jamaica, the Bahamas, Caribbean and The United States, and his longtime engagement as a psychotherapist and specialist, mainly in alcoholism treatment, research and rehabilitation.

In my thirty-five-year-old week-day radio program and newspaper column, Investing In Being Human, I’ve elected many times to focus this topic, suffering, as, The Mystery And Miracle of Suffering. Material for those works, and some pertinent data used in this paper, are informed by the thinking of Warren W. Wiersbe’s deeply insightful 158-page booklet, When Life Falls Apart [WLFA], and complimented by Pema Chodron’s When Things Fall Apart [Heart Advice for Difficult Times]. To these are added an infusion of devotional and biblical material. read more....
