The opposite of faith is not doubt: It is certainty. It is madness. You can tell you have created God in your own image when it turns out that he or she hates all the same people you do.
For me, Jesus is my cleft in the rock. He is my safest friend, my safe totally loving accepting big brother.
No one can appropriate God, goodness, the Bible or Jesus. It just seems that way.
My parents, and librarians along the way, taught me about the space between words; about the margins, where so many juicy moments of life and spirit and friendship could be found. In a library, you could find miracles and truth and you might find something that would make you laugh so hard that you get shushed, in the friendliest way.
