Lent 2013, XXI

XXI. The lack of understanding is really the point of this
series of questions. Trust is easy to explain, hard to do. Understanding is
hard to explain, but once you explain it, everything else gets a whole lot
easier. Unfortunately I am still uncertain as to how to draw a precise balance
between what Charles Williams would call the “Way of Affirmation” and the “Way
of Rejection.” The one thing this series has done so far (it ain’t over yet) is
to bring three ideas to bear on it: 1) In order to be authentically human,
every life must contain some of both. 2) The balance between the two is not the
most important question. 3) God cannot be in competition with His creatures.
