another good article for the day

Bothered by the cross
by Deanna Murshed

As someone who has been a Christian for a while now, I must confess that the idea of redemption through the cross has lost its power to bother or puzzle me as it did in the past.

I remember being jealous of folks who could confess a grand conversion experience that pulled them from lives of sheer drunken hedonistic debauchery - dramatic stories in which they were saved just in the nick of time - into resurrection just by the skin of their teeth. And although getting in by the skin of our teeth is surely true for all of us, it is at least more obvious in those great stories, for whatever reason.

But that is not my story...

Great article! I wish my brain would delve more deeply into such topics, because I'm pretty much a kid still when it comes to faith: I take it all in and just believe. I don't really question.

Ironically, I'm marrying a man who questions EVERYTHING, so maybe that will challenge me. =)
