Can God Love Me In This?

Can God Love Me In This?

"Do you think God could love me in alcoholism?" said Cal. A withered and worn 60'ish-year-old man with tan skin and strong hands-strong hands politely folded over a rail that separated us from him. It was Friday night, the night before our 5 am Hopefest 2016 wake-up call. This particular…
