I’ve experienced somewhat of a shift in my faith the past several months. Again. And likely (hopefully) not the last. Difficult to articulate, it has something to do with a desire to ‘be’ or ‘do’ the gospel, as opposed to hearing a different spin on the gospel. There’s more to it than that, but that’s what I know today.
This has been most evident in my lack of engagement at so-called evangelical gatherings, where the message was presented by a speaker to a captive audience. On two separate occasions lately, I was hugely under-whelmed, when in times past I would have been totally engaged and on track with the presenter. It has been a bit disappointing. The times that I have been engaged, particularly when I look at what resonated with me the most at Greenbelt
, speak to this as well.
No, I’m not losing faith. And you need not worry that I am not reading the latest Christian book. I’m not. And I likely won’t be any time soon. But I am leaving a little more room for Jesus.
