Divine Connection

Photo by: Luke Chesser We are probably more "connected" now than at any other time in history. Many panic if they don't have their cell phone when they go out the door. Most people keep their phones on 24/7 and can be reached at any time, any day. Our "smart" phones will gladly tell us anything and everything horrible happening anywhere simply by pressing a button. We know what's going on next door and on the other side of the world. While some of us remember when it was high-tech to have an answering machine to check when we got home in the evening, there is a whole generation that has never had to read a map, plan ahead for a trip, rely on their own resources, or been without some means o
