Light

Gray, tension, contentment, creativity/progress, and the image of God

My good friend Stephanie has spurred me into thinking about a lot of things over the past couple of days, including what it means for Christians to live in a world full of "gray." Many of us respond just by fighting it (or denying it) with "black and white"; others decide that our uncertainties define reality regardless of God's assurances. I think the gospel calls us a different way, so I've compiled some of my thoughts from our discussion in the comments section of a prior entry:

Yielding to Someone other than myself to be the author and final arbiter of truth makes some things that would otherwise be black and white become gray, and vice versa.
