Every year, children by the millions scrawl out their wish lists and drop them in the mail at the nearby post office. These innocent missives have a common destination, The North Pole, where the hopeful children believe that a caring elf in a red suit will read their lists and deliver their heart’s desire in a magical sleigh on December 24th.
For some adults, the idea of sending up a similar message to the kind father figure in the sky is about as effective as a letter to Santa Clause. Others still have hope that their prayers are heard by Someone. Transitioning from the traditional LDS belief in a personal God into a redefined worldview is a tough process. Forging a new understanding outside of the doctrinal parameters of the Church is challenging.
Some days it would be comforting to believe that Heavenly Father is just a few words away. For just a moment, give yourself the permission to do this very thing. Submit your Letter to God to the contact page and we will publish as many as we can on the Peacewriter between now and the end of the year. Use an alias or whatever you are comfortable using. Say anything you like, this is your chance to say what you need to say. Write it as if God really will hear you. Only this time, hold nothing back. You do not have to fear the consequences for pouring your heart out.
