My FMag article today: Stealing Children

My editorial for the “Final Phase” column on Forthright Magazine today is called “Stealing Children” and makes a spiritual application.

A close friend of ours was in the supermarket a couple of weeks ago with his daughter of four. He pulled the shopping cart up to the checkout counter, picked his daughter up out of the cart and set her down beside him, then began unloading his items on the conveyor belt. When he finished, he turned to his daughter, but she was gone.

Be sure to check it out. I suspect it will provoke reactions.
