Have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and to try to love the questions themselves as if they were locked rooms or books written in a very foreign language. Don’t search for the answers, which could not be given to you now, because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps then, someday far in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answer. —Rainer Maria Rilke
Now that's the kind of show I'd like to see... Hopefully, it goes national sometime.
By the way, I've been reading you for a little over a year now, but finally feel led to comment on your last few posts.
I'm a recently minted Episcopalian who has spent a lot of time treading the waters of evangelical higher education. I was raised United Methodist, and my formative years of faith (including four years of bible college) were spent in the independent Christian churches.
Anyway, the questions you wrestle with concerning Christology and soteriology are the same questions I'm still working out for myself, so I really enjoy hearing your perspective. Also, I really think your vocational journey and your decision to attend Fuller are fascinating as well.
I just moved from a conservative diocese that does ordain women to an even more conservative diocese that doesn't, which is frankly very frustrating to me, so you have my prayers. I'm currently discerning a call to vocation myself, so it's nice to see the process play out.
I've rambled enough, but thank you for the stimulating thought you share here.
Thank you so much for commenting. I really like to know who's out there reading. Feels like less of a void that I'm sending my deepest darkest out in to.
