I have been nominated by The Britchy One and Anita Bowden, both enormously talented writers, to participate in the Three Days, Three Quotes Challenge. I have already participated in this challenge, so for this second time around, I am going to break the rules (Yes, that’s me – the rule-breaker!)
Here are the typical rules:
- Thank the person who nominated you.
- Post one quote per day over three days.
- Nominate 3 blogs per day to take part in the challenge.
Here are my version of the rules:
- Thank you so much, Anita and Britchy! I am honored that you thought about me when making your nominations.
- I am going to post all three quotes in one day (today).
- I nominate everyone who is reading this blog who would like to participate. Really. Try it, it’s fun!
All of the quotes are by Paul Tillich, a 20th century theologian whom I admire immensely for his intellect and his faith.
On doubt: “Faith includes courage. Therefore, it can include the doubt about itself.”
On holiness: “There is no conditional way of reaching the unconditional; there is no finite way of reaching the infinite.”
On the dynamics of faith: ” The human heart seeks the infinite because that is where the finite wants to rest. In the infinite it sees its own fulfillment.”
