Dichotomy


The opposite of faith is not doubt, but cynicism. Faith does not shirk the difficult questions, embarassed by lack of knowledge or certitude. Answers do not have to materialize on command- permission to allow a doubt to be voiced is often the only remedy required. God is not made the more insecure by our attempts to fit infinity into some tidy argument ‘for or against’. The journey is as important as the destination- and God has plenty of scenary for us to marvel at on the way.

    Hi, my name is Paige. We don’t know each other, but I must confess, I do read your blog from time to time. There is no email address available on your blog so I am asking this question on a random comment section. May I put you on my blogroll? I found your blog through Matthew’s blog. I don’t like to read a blog without the writer’s knowledge. : ) I do enjoy your posts, although I’m afraid I am much less educated than you are…

    Thankyou Paige! I am always blessed to know that my bloggets are being read by someone. Don’t be intimidated by education- it is much more important to be kind than it is to be clever. The best wisdom does not come from books, but from encounters with living people!God bless you.
