Preaching to myself

As I'm once again in job-search mode, only this time in a much less rosy economic climate, I needed to go back and read my own words today.

I'm sorry you looking for a job in this economy. I'll be praying for you.

I thought your post on doubts was very good and this is an excellent response to what Obama said in his speech at Notre Dame:

"I've heard a few Christians say that 'doubt is good' or 'doubt is necessary for faith' or some other inversion of the same chord. Beyond the truism that faith in some ways has to be preceded by doubt, that always sounded off-key to me. I think one fellow in particular meant that doubt or uncertainty keeps us humble, but I don't think that's true. I think doubt is usually our way of holding our faith over God's head, insisting that it fundamentally belongs to us - and that's a distinctly arrogant position. Jesus instructed Thomas to 'be not faithless, but believing.'"

Very timely if you intended to post on the speech :-) I'd quote it if I ever got around to blogging about it :-) But I had chemo today so I might not get around to posting anything that takes real thought until Friday.
