Just found this tweet, originally (I think) from Diana Butler Bass:
“We r a pluralistic nation. The context of how we think abt faith has shifted in our lifetime.”
I don’t know about you, but the way I think about faith has shifted in the last 5 years. I hope and pray it continues to shift! As I learn and grow in my relationships with God, with fellow Jesus-followers, and with others, I am excited to be able to look back and see that I may be, indeed, be “putting an end to childish things.” (1 Cor 13:11 CEB)
Did you have the world figured out 5 or 10 years ago? Has that way of thinking and understanding withstood the new experiences and relationships you have had since then? If so, you were (and are) far ahead of me.
I am most encouraged that I have been moving generally in the same direction for more than a decade now.
May our understanding(s) continue to shift in the future!
