IS THE BEST ANSWER,
"I DON'T KNOW?"
I was just having this conversation with my email friend Phylis when I discovered that Sullivan had re-posted a sensibility from Rev. Tom Honey that I can truly relate to.
"When I stood up to speak to my people about God and the tsunami, I had no answers to offer them. No neat packages of faith with Bible references to prove them. Only doubts and questions and uncertainty. I had some suggestions to make - possible new ways of thinking about God. Ways that might allow us to go on, down a new and uncharted road. But in the end the only thing I could say for sure was I don't know, and that might just be the most profoundly religious statement of all."
