unite you with them and free you from the past. Would
you, then, hold the past against them? For if you do,
you are choosing to remain in the darkness that is not
there, and refusing to accept the light that is offered

called upon Him and remained unanswered. His call to
you is but your call to Him. And in Him you are answered
by His peace.
