September 14, 2009: Can we have both faith and doubt?

Posted on : Sep 14th, 2009 | By | Category: Still Speaking

About a year ago my now twelve year old daughter confided in me one evening that she was in doubt over the existence of God – “How can I be really sure God exists?” she asked. Quite a brave confession if you consider that both her parents are pastors. “Mom,” she pleaded, “are you 100% sure God exists and can you promise me it’s true?” Such an honest baring of her soul required an honest answer from me – “No, I can’t.” grants for school homely.
