Being and meaning …

… Writing in the Sand: The Poetry of Doubt and Faith by Christian Wiman. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

… you can make an idolatry of doubt. You can become so comfortable with God’s absence and distance that eventually your own unknowingness gives you a big fat apophatic hug. One could argue that when doubt becomes the path of least resistance it becomes the very thing that a faithful person must most resist. And resistance is often a matter of language.
