My name is Ray Majoran. I was born in Toronto, Ontario in 1976 to wonderful parents: Steve Majoran and Elaine Gibbison. I am married to my amazing wife, Carolyn, and together we have a beautiful daughter named Adalai.
“Dear Friends, Family, Neighbors, World…” is dedicated to everyone I’ve ever met, and to those of you who I haven’t yet met. I started planning it back in 1998 before Carolyn and I were married, and have wanted to finish it ever since.
One thing I’ve learned in the last 16 years is that time is what you make of it. It’s easy to go through life having “good intentions” when it comes to delivering on things that you want to do or say. But it’s up to each of us to take the time to actually do them. For me, this book is one of those things that I needed to do.
In Luke 19:37-39, as Jesus was entering Jerusalem on a donkey, a whole multitude of His disciples began rejoicing, saying, “Blessed is the King who comes in the name of the Lord! Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!”
In response, some of the Pharisees in the crowd said to him, “Teacher, rebuke your disciples.”Jesus replied to them in verse 40: “I tell you, if these were silent, the very stones would cry out.”
That’s how I feel about Christ and the need for me to write this book. In a politically correct world that shuns the idea of God (let alone the idea that He is in control of it), I have chosen to not be silent.
