It’s Okay

I remember the first time somebody “got it”.

They heard my thoughts on faith, doubt, belief and mystery and they understood.

It was a magical experience.

I didn’t feel crazy.

Many times questioning is seen as challenging and is met with resistance.

It doesn’t have to be that way.

It’s okay to question.

It’s okay to doubt.

It’s okay to live in mystery.

And it’s better to do so in the context of community.

We’re all on a journey.

Sometimes we don’t need answers, we need listeners.

Sometimes we don’t need preaching, we need a hot cup of coffee.

Sometimes we need some fellow journeyers to remind us we’re okay.


 

If any of that sounds appealing, I’m hosting a conversation tomorrow (Wed., Jan. 31st). It would be great to have you!
