The Angel Effect

Angels, Today: A Q&A with John Geiger

"Set aside the question of what causes this. The fact is it happens. We are never, truly, alone. There is a companion we can call on when most in need. Think about that fact. It is startling and important. Why aren’t we talking about this more?"
