In the second in this series, Growing Edges: 5 Ways the Church can Be More Faithful, Russ looks at the need for embracing mystery. He begins with the truth that no human being can grasp the full meaning of God. If we think we can, then our concept of God is far too small.
Despite that, for so long the focus in the church has been on providing answers and developing doctrine, that we don’t take the time to allow people to struggle with the questions that will eventually lead them to faith. We have become a society that yearns for answers and formulas for living a better life without going through the some-times difficult process of searching for and discovering God.
