The Great Mystery
"Religion has not tended to create seekers or searchers, has not tended to create honest, humble people who trust that God is always beyond them.
We aren’t focused on the great mystery.
Religion has, rather, tended to create people who think they have God in their pockets, people with quick, easy, glib answers.
That’s why so much of the West is understandably abandoning religion.
People know the great mystery cannot be that simple and facile.
If the great mystery is indeed the Great Mystery, it will lead us into paradox, into darkness, into journeys that never cease...That is what prayer is about." -Richard Rohr, Everything Belongs
