Faith is the daring.....

"Faith is the daring of the soul to go farther than it can see"
- William Newton Clarke -

Holy Week Christian for a long time.....I've seen it before......I know the story's hero, villains, traitors, ardent followers and grievers. I could (and probably do) play each role in the story if depicted on stage; except that of the hero. Why does the story still hold the fascination of a mystery? Why do I still wonder what Jesus did every day and every moment of his life, in particular, those last days of his life? Why, why, why?

I haven't lost my faith, no, it seems sturdier than ever but the quote from Mr. Clarke seems to summarize where my soul feels this day in Holy Week - Holy Tuesday. How about you? Does your soul still dare to question farther than it can see - or does your soul not ask questions anymore? I can't see that far in my future to think I will stop asking questions about this profound and holy mystery in which I choose to believe.

  1. does my soul dare to question farther than it can see? absolutely! perpetually...consistently...especially since i have no idea what the next moment will hold. it indeed feels daring and so much more life giving than "knowing" and/or ceasing to ask questions.

    is it easy? no way! xoxxo

    "when you die to every moment, then you'll know how to live." words from a song while i was composing this comment :)

  2. Agreed! Is it easy? No way! xoxoxo
