Understanding God has been a lifelong quest. My beliefs about God and God’s role in my life has had a significant impact on my sense of psychological well-being. Ideas about God, spirituality and religion have also profoundly affected many of the individuals I have supported in my capacity, as a mental health clinician. For some understanding of and relationship to God, has brought comfort. For others distress. For me, both.
Recently, during a visit to the grocery store, I overheard the blood curdling, inconsolable screams of a distressed child. It brought back memories of the numerous, similar experiences I had with my son Jordan.
