If you’ve never doubted

If you’ve never bumped up against your past beliefs...

If you’ve never set fire to past ideologies, doctrines, dogmas, rituals (secular or religious)…

If you’ve never honestly questioned the faith of your mother, father, and grandparents…

If certainty has never blown up in your face…

(Maybe a couple times…)

If you’ve never preached to your family and friends about how the world works one way quickly to be shown by life that you weren’t even close…

If you’ve never shaken your fist towards the sky at whatever might be looming over us, peering into the glass…

If you’ve never doubted…

I don’t know if I can hear you.

I don’t know if your words carry much weight.

Doubters, I hear you.

Because you bring something new for all of us to see. You show up with a resounding conviction.

You’ve put your blood, slobber, and smeared fingerprints onto your faith. You’ve sunk your fangs into it.

Your faith isn’t smooth and recited, but rough, abrasive, and gripping.

I hear you, doubters. Take us further. Take us deeper than we can go ourselves.
