More questions than answers….

Early this morning; photograph for the blog. Foreground, sea, boat and structures! My deduction was that the boat was towing. the structures, heading in a northerly direction. This was simply because they kept a equal distance and the structures had no obvious means of propulsion! Whare they were heading and for what purpose, I have no idea, but I’m fine with that. Mystery is an important part of our mental framework!

You may remember the song by Johnny Nash,..‘There are more questions than answers…and the more I find out the less I know.’ There it is in a nutshell! We live in a time where we have pushed the boundaries of what we undestand and know and still there is mystery and much to understand. We each create our own narrative about ourselves; our place in the world and what still stays as mystery, Life is about balance and also living with what we cannot fathom.

I have more questions than answers, and in terms of faith in God that balance doesn’t change. Without the questions, there would be no possibility of answers. So faith lives with that tension, which is massively frustrating at times, but is actually the driver to explore further. Here are some words from the letter to the Hebrews, in the New Testament; Chapter 11, verse 1; Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. Something here about a profound trust, living with mystery.

The scene I photgraphed this morning, left me with more questions than answers, and that’s fine. Because that’s life and faith!!
