"I'm not a priest, but I am a pastor." says Pastor Roland. I am a spiritual care giver and I can also direct people to resources to get their questions answered.
And I make myself available to people on the internet. I've been talking with people about coping with stress and improving their relationships on my radio program, in my books and articles, and in person for 25 years."
We offer an outstanding array of free audio sermons articles, a meditation to calm down, and even some free books to read online at our 24/7 Self Help Resource Center.
One of my favorite verses:
"This is the day which the Lord hath made. I will rejoice and be glad in it."

2. No emergencies or crises.
3. I cannot do counseling at free chat but I can give you an answer or a resource for educational purposes.
4. No domestic violence or abuse issues. Please text responsibly.

Pastor, I've got a relationship question. Can I ask at free chat?
You might want to Go to Healing Relationships - my relationships site where you can find out about getting a relationship question answered. You don't have to be a Christian to talk to me. I'm just interested in solutions, recovery, optimal living and solving issues. Please check out my free self help resources, especially the meditation
How to use this site
Listen to one of my radio program lectures. I talk about improving relationships, finding happiness, and much more. I also talk about the meditation and how it helps you resolve issues and find creative positive solutions.
So the first thing to do is click on the link, chose a program and just listen.
Maybe you will hear the answer to you question within a few minutes by listening to me. Don't laugh, it happens all the time. Listen now while you read this blog. This is my radio lecture on how to solve your problems and improve your relationships.
The second thing to do is to consider trying the meditation. Just go to our 24/7 self help resource center and check out the various meditations. Try the free 5 minute meditation for stress, and then go ahead and get the classic 4 part meditation which includes 2 free eBooks and a free booklet.
Then if you have a question, you can ask me personally.
I know you want an immediate solution to your issue, but first you need to calm down, get centered, and get out of the mental fog--then you will be in the right frame of mind to understand and apply any wisdom you hear or discover for yourself.
That's why I recommend people listen to my lectures and perhaps try the meditation before contacting me.
However, if you need prayer, please send your prayer request right away. Send your prayer request and then listen to me in one of my lectures. Some people have said that they found listening to me calming and helpful.
