Love The Questions

I want to beg you … to be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and to try to love the question themselves like locked rooms and like books that are written in a very foreigh tongue. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps you will then gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer.

Rainer Maria Rilke


  1. This is not a comment on this particular post so much as it is on your self description.

    I must say I feel very much the same way in terms of being bored with most contemporary theology. The only contemporary theology I find interesting at this point is that of Dr. Ephraim Radner. Have you read any of it? If you have, I'd be interested in your take.

  2. Hi dagis, and thanks for visiting my blog. No, I'm sorry I have not even heard of him! Why do you find him interesting?

  3. Not even heard of him!!? This guy is a foremost voice in discussions on the anglican communion from within the episcopalian framework. Among his recent work is a book about the agony of the anglican communion, but he's also got a theory that where's there's no visible communion, there the Spirit is not present. It's meant to be confronting and perhaps it's that which Dagis is intimating. At any rate as an anglican you ought at least to be familiar with his name.
