Spiritual Rhythms of Life for Today

A realistic faith is a constant dialogue between the because of and the in spite of. In living a spiritual life, we traverse periods of belief in God that are like the vistas of a changing landscape. Sometimes the viability of the reasons for faith are convincing and firm, while at other times we are clinging to faith with little conviction or resolve. We can experience the joy of sufficient answers or the dread of the awareness that many questions are left unresolved. Passing through the valley of the shadow of death rocks our faith, yet God is with us to comfort and console.
