110Re: Losing Faith?
- May 11, 2000Hey, Connie -- good to hear from you. Things have been quiet lately, so it's
good to get some conversation going!
Two thoughts. First, some of us seem to find solitude easy and community
hard, and others of us seem to find the opposite. My guess is that in the
long run, each of us has to do the easy part and the hard part for a healthy
faith. Does that make sense? You may be at a point right now where the
solitude part is most important, and that's certainly OK. I'd suspect
though, that eventually the community part will become important again too.
Second, someone just passed on to me this quote (sort of) by Soren
Kierkegaard. He said that if God had to choose between absolute and complete
knowledge on the one hand, and the eternal quest for truth on the other, he
would choose the latter. I guess it's an impossible question, but it was
Kierkegaard's way of saying, I think, that we humans need to keep seeking,
and that's what I felt from your posting ... that desire to keep seeking.
That's good! -- Brian
