One of the scariest things a person can do is question the belief system they always took for granted. The world seems a more uncertain place. More chaotic. The frame that used to contain it and hold all its colours in is now no longer solid. The colours and shapes in the picture threaten to jump out and take over the universe, spreading chaos, confusion and instability wherever they go.
At least, that’s how I feel sometimes.
I grew up in church, proudly conservative with definite fundamentalist leanings. There was very little room for grey in my black-and-white world view, let alone colour. Then, one day, a very innocent-looking question lodged itself in my mind and left a hint of colour in my picture. Why do Catholic Bibles have more books than Protestant Bibles? About seven years later I have more questions than I know what to do with and, at last count, a total of zero answers.
My purpose in creating this blog is to share some of my questions and the intriguing ideas I encounter as I search for answers. I hope people who find my writings can identify with my search and find some kind of encouragement or sense of companionship as they search for their own answers.
