I’m a firm believer that faith lost can become faith regained. If that makes me an outcast at the latest Calvinist Meet-up then so be it. The Scriptures are unambiguously clear on this. In any event, I’ve been reading stories from those who lost their faith and then reflected upon what it’s meant to them. This is not my “I told you so” moment, but a look into the eye of a lost faith and its meaning to those who tell it.
I’d love to be able to say that all these stories have a happy ending. Some do. Some do not. But, for the record, it ain’t over till it’s over. In the meantime, we pray for those in the abyss of doubt and disillusionment.
With that in mind, I present to you some thoughts from Margaret Wheeler Johnson, Huffington Post’s Women vertical editor. I offer no commentary, no reflection. There are others like it I’ll post in the future, so keep your eyes open for them soon.
