IT’S ALWAYS DANGEROUS to admit your faults in public. But here goes…. I’m occasionally an idolater. Not just any idolater, but one whose idol is himself. HOWEVER, God is merciful. He knows that I want to leave idolatry behind, and — with the patience of one who knows the end from the beginning — He’s working on me. I wrote this several weeks ago, and have not had the courage to post it until now, except to some other creatives who intimately understand the struggle.
