In describing how he tries to approach life West says his intention is
“to love my way through the absurdity of life.”
To love our way through the absurdity of life.
I think a lot of theological conversation ends up in absurdity. In the face of pain. In the face of suffering. In the face of death. In the face of things we know nothing about.
In the face of all that absurdity I think Christians talk too damn much.
Me included, given the flood of words on this blog.
But the main reason I am a Christian is that it gives me a way to “love my way through.” My Christianity isn’t a metaphysical system. It’s not a theory. It’s not a creed or an orthodoxy. It’s not a sacred book.
It is a way to love my way through.
