    Thanks again Lorraine for such insight and honesty – at a time in our culture when we (I really mean me) want to break free from the structure, rigidity, formalities and pressures of our past, and embrace a more relaxed, organic and real approach to life, ‘casual’ is so attractive … yet you prompt me to consider that some relationships need more than ‘casual’.

      Thanks Campbell.
      C. S. Lewis, says, “To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything and your heart will be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact you must give it to no one.” This is why we choose ‘casual’. The fear of love being painful and the vulnerability that always seems to accompany it, didn’t stop God first hand experiencing this with humanity. It is, what I think, a great risk he was willing to take: proof of love to us – beautiful and incredibly heartbreaking.
