When we discuss an Embodied Certainty of God, we are also confronted with the human experience of the tremendous uncertainty that can enter into our lives. I believe that there are times when only through entering uncertainty can authenticity be achieved.
Biblical theology’s unique understanding is that living the sacred life requires a dialectical relationship between paradise and paradox – between core certainties and the existence of uncertainty. Both certainty and uncertainty are vital – each has its moment. Healthy religion as well as healthy living flow from simultaneously maintaining certainty and uncertainty.
So how then, do we hold uncertainty during those times when our lives are deeply challenged?
