SUNDAY QUOTE from ALPHABET OF FAITH
Until I became a lay worship leader in rural Nova Scotia in January 2013,
I ignored by doubts and I stayed away from church.
But returning to church
that way --
reading scripture and writing prayers and writing a message --
forced me to address my doubts,
to ask why I believed certain things
and why I felt that way about those particular ideas
to ask why I no longer believed certain things
and why I felt differently about those particular ideas.
is hard --
it means change --
but it's worth it.
Writing an essay about doubt
is also hard
but worth it.
Doubt can lead us to authenticity,
"My doubting, my seeking, my exploring --
my willing to be uncomfortable --
helped me discover something I have complete faith in:
the world needs more Jesus."
