There have been many moments, where I've reached for Father's hand, and immediately felt His presents sweep over me. Way back, in 1971,(shortly before the UB found me) my Dad died, I was completely overwhelmed, and devastated. I remember raising my arms with eyes closed, and just saying "peace and love". Instantly
I felt a cleansing wave flow over me, putting me at peace. Its as close to magic as anything I know.
BTW, have you thought about working with others who find themselves in the "felon" predicament? They are possible open to the UB message...
