"When we feel we have been suffering unjustly, we may cry for justice, outraged at injustice. But is it justice we really want? Why, then, the cross? If justice will suffice, Jesus died in vain. Or, to put it another way, if God had simply been 'just' with Jesus, he would not have sent him to the cross. Is it simple 'justice' we want? What do we do with a God who loves us so much he sends his Son to bear that kind of suffering? How must these realities that lie at the very center of our faith bear on our understanding of the problem of evil and suffering? From any Christian perspective, our theoretical and practical approach to evil and suffering must fasten on the cross, or we are bound to take a false step."

Soon we are going to pack up all six of us and head to New Mexico to Ski Apache. Have any of you ever been there? Have any tips for us? We've never been skiing before as a family, so we need to learn the ropes.
Just wondering - any advice will be much appreciated.
