I love this celebration of mystery- Thank you! As I have become older, mystery has become a crucial part of my faith. How else can I understand suffering in the context of a God who I believe to be loving and "good" - only by embracing mystery, embracing the fact that sometimes the answers we crave may never come. And this is a GOOD thing. Because I suspect the "why" I long for would prove to be hollow. And perhaps, true healing comes through a "who" instead - the great, awe-inspiring, but very real God who is beyond my understanding, but present nonetheless.
