I love a good mystery novel or movie. When I was in 5th grade my mother gave me The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Canon Doyle and I could not put it down until I had read it cover to cover. What I love about mysteries is not the mystery itself, but the clarity at the end when Holmes explains the case, all is revealed and the world is "right' again. I think I like this so much because it is so unrealistic. Daily I am surrounded by mysteries: questions I cannot answer and things I do not understand or behavior I cannot rationalize and I find these unknowns-these mysteries infuriating. Much of faith is a mystery. We are not given the knowledge of what tomorrow will hold, how our lives will turn out or even why bad things happen to good people - instead we are asked to trust in God. We are asked to rest in the unknown mystery of life in the confidence that the goodness of God will prevail. I don't know about you, but I struggle with that kind of vulnerable, self exposing, risk-taking trust. Join us Sunday as we are challenged to trust in God's mysteries.
