We are discussing a book in the adult class on Sunday mornings and we came across this sentence: “Mature religion, far from doing away with ambiguity, gives us the grace to live with it.” I have heard something like this before but was looking for an illustration when I found this in a daily devotional book:
“Today I can feel anger toward someone and still love them.
I can feel afraid of new experiences, yet move forward through them.
I can survive being hurt without giving up on love.
And I can experience sadness and still be confident that I will be happy again.”
Courage to Change (December 4)
This to me is living with ambiguity.
