On of the blogs I subscribe to is OnFaith.
OnFaith was founded almost 10 years ago by Sally Quinn who worked for the Washington Post. Her most recent post which showed up in my inbox this afternoon rang true for me on many levels, but one sentence jumped out. “Agnostics say they don’t know. And, I believe we are all agnostics – even the Pope.”
I am an agnostic.
I don’t know.
And, I am a Christian.
Using the teaching and witness of Jesus to do my best to find my way.
But it is the not knowing which I find intriguing and refreshing and which I think is important because however you describe that which we know and name as God, our words and our understanding fall short of what is. It is certainty which stops us in our tracks. Stops our growth and our dreaming and our reaching and our longing.
I don’t ever want to get to that point.
