    For a hopeful scholarship

    Hello, prayer forum. Here's the situation: I'm a senior in high school, and I have a good, but not phenomenally good, resume. I would really like to go to Loyola University of Chicago.

    So I think I might be having a crisis of faith.

    For my friend Hannah

    A brief introduction: I'm 16, and I got a Protestant high school. Over the past couple of years, I've become very good friends with a girl named Hannah. She attends a megachurch with her family, but has confided in me that she's lost her faith in Christianity and now privately identifies as...

    A Dilemma of Mine

    My Sunday School teacher at our Southern Baptist Church asked us to take over teaching duties while he left for Air Force training (He is ordained and plans to become a chaplain once he finishes seminary.) He wrote out a list of topics on the board, and I was assigned "ordinances". (That's...
