  • What lies and illusions do I mistake for truth?
  • In what memories or traditions do I attempt to “house” God?
  • On what shiny religious edifice do I pin my hopes, instead of trusting Jesus? (My denomination? My church? My spiritual heritage?)

  • Am I willing to sit with the fact that things fall apart? (Things I love, things I built, things I cried and prayed and strived for?)
  • Can I embrace a journey of faith that includes rubble, ruin, and failure?
