All the lonely people

From the riddle of time (chapter 3) to the riddle of human loneliness. You could be lonely because you’re a powerless victim of injustice, or because the rat-race of life has killed your spirit, drawing you away from the image of God in community. A partial solution: recognise that humans are meant to be in relationship, and so find, join or create a community – the church being the best place on earth. Full solution (of which the partial is but a shadow): the final satisfaction of the friendship of Christ, who laid down his life for those he called friends.
