In Nauroth’s attempt to make the Nicene Creed applicable to us today, I received an invitation to go beyond the surface. I never thought in the deep diving into a statement I know so well, I’d find myself at the well talking with the Lord.
When we get out from behind our fear, which is craftily veiled in paper-thin tribes and sound bites, we realize that even our own opinions have nuance to them. It’s time to stop seeing any view contrary to ours as “wrong” and be willing to acknowledge the shades of gray we hold. If we cannot, our society, relationships, and humanity will continue to decline.
