Sermon: The Wisdom in Uncertainty
Rev. Chandler Stokes
My colleague, Erin Keys, writes, “There is an aspect of human nature that is forever trying to create a dichotomy, forever trying to make things black and white, forever trying to create a worldview based on two opposing forces, when the truth is always far more complex…. Anytime we are given two opposite views, the reality is that neither one is totally true. The life-giving gift of the Spirit is to be found in the wisdom of uncertainty; of wading in to a reality that is vague and often confusing, but one that offers an alternative to seeing things as either one way or the other.” That is the wisdom in uncertainty.
