correction: these are not anarchists. They are protesting for the civil right to protest peacefully without being gassed or hosed.

A friend of ours asked me privately:

Can you explain this line in your recent blog (last reference about God)?: 
"The error occurs when i think that another person is the key to my happiness, whether it is my husband, my children, a friend or God himself."

I obtained permission to post my answer, since other people also might not have been sure what i meant there: 

Yes. I mean to contradict the idea that all I need is God's love toward me in order to be happy. God said it wasn't good for Adam to be alone. We are made to be in relationship with others of our own kind, just as the Father, Son and Spirit are in (and have been since eternity past)relationship. So, although God is the source of all love and he can comfort us when we are forced to be alone for a season, it isn't his plan for us. We are not meant to tough it out alone. Paul, though single, had deep relationships with his co-workers and was comforted when they came to him and depressed when they deserted him. But his joy continued when he was pouring his life out for very specific people. He loved them. That is where he had the mind of Christ and experienced the joy of the Lord.
