Sam Weaver column
Sam Weaver is a native Texan. Lively discussions back in 1984--first with his very liberal girlfriend, and then with several college instructors--made him question his beliefs and his belief system. From that point on, one major prayer has sustained him: "God, please reveal Yourself to me and show me Truth!" This prayer, and his on-going, 22-year philosophical quest, has given Sam unique insight on the deep and "controversial" topics of religion, politics, economics and science.
