My wife and I are in the midst of downsizing as we will be moving to a smaller place soon. Today I ran across a short piece I wrote on June 8th, 1978: Christianity is not a religion where all my questions must have answers set in concrete. Rather Christianity is a base from which I can venture forth with my questions, doubts and dissatisfaction's in search of Him and eternal truth. I do not have to be satisfied with things as they are. It is much better to honestly doubt and to be a pilgrim on the journey than to be a pious and smug person full of self-assurance. For as such stuff as doubt coupled with search is a deeper knowledge of God possible. The eternal search for the eternal.
