The other day in an email exchange I was asked the following question:
“Where are you in your faith?”
This question was one I hadn’t really considered in some time so after much thought and consideration, here is my short answer to that question.
God, Church, Faith – these subjects have been and continue to be the largest shapers of my life… much of it good and some of it not-so-good. By not-so-good I mean in the traditional sense. For example, I don’t view things nearly as black and white as I did a few short years ago. For me, more has been learned from doubting than was ever learned by believing. So I am as thankful for my doubts as much as I am my faith. I know that this may seem nebulous, and it is that way for a reason. My life, my faith, my doubts…they are a part of this journey and inside each moment is a lesson to be learned.
