As a thinking Christian I'm OK with a bit of mystery - and as a New Testament Scholar in training I am happy to tear through the scriptures and glue them together again in interesting ways. My faith / trust in Jesus remains in tact and I don't suffer from cognitive dissonance - mostly an overwhelming sense of an amazedness.
I believe in searching for the truth - using the gifts of historical study, of reason and intellect. I don't belief in suspending disbelief and I don't buy into eighteenth century empiricism.
But that's just me.
I also recommend a good dose of Marcus Borg.
Read the article - it was interesting.

Slow and steady wins the race. Not sure if I am going to win any races, but I sure am slow and not that steady when it comes to updating my blog. This HUGE snail was in Cintsa... my dog Tully would have gone insane trying to crunch it in her mouth like she does with all our local garden snails. I missed her, but I'm glad she didn't find a snail this big to drag into the lounge.
The comment below was from a movie - Junebug. Its a slow film - my sort of movie - I really enjoyed it. I wonder if God is the one who does the changing, or if its just us who change in response to God?
