On the spectrum of belief, of faith in God, I probably log in at a 7 most days. I’m not a 10.
Faith is timeless. It is not locked into this moment we call the present. It reaches out for us – backward or forward. It goes where it needs to go. It hears our old prayers and the ones we’ve not yet prayed, nodding its head “Yes” the very moment we are ready to receive it.
She (the church) has been pathological at times, so I stand beside those who have abandoned her – who may feel she abandoned them first.
