The Art of Confession

Whether it's to the priest or the police, most of us have a warped at best view of confession. Either way, it's as if we tell our secret and someone uses it against us. Have you ever had the opportunity to tell your secret in a safe place? To a safe person? In the presence of a safe God? If not, then there is great news for you!

The Yoke

"I’ve had the crappiest month of my life. A family member died, and then my friend died four days later and that really sucked. Anyway, I’ve been having suicidal thoughts for a while now, and I don’t really know what to do. I actually tried to kill myself twice by swallowing a bunch of pills, but it didn’t work and that
really ticked me off. I did OD though, and that was interesting... kinda cool, really. I probably shouldn’t even send this, but I’m going against my better judgment and doing it anyway.
