Christian Faith & Life
Ironic, isn’t it, that two cherished pieces of evangelical theology—God’s love and God’s unchangeableness—sit so uncomfortably together, at least once you dig down a bit.
Complaining to God is a way of standing by God. Sometimes it’s all we have.
Sometimes suffering opens up the heart when nothing else can.
Rituals are not beholden to our thinking but shape our thinking and when necessary step in the gap when our minds are tired and our feelings empty.
