Last week, a beautiful, vibrant young woman who has grown up in Christian family and works full-time for a Christian Charity asked me, ‘Why am I never really fully satisfied in Christ?’ The brutal honesty momentarily stunned me. She spoke as if she had pulled back some kind of veil and revealed a truth: that while we all say ‘God is all I need’ it’s not actually true in real everyday life, is it?
