This Week in Church: Inexhaustible mysteries and disenchantment

Welcome to the series wherein I share my take-aways from church. The things that, I think, are beneficial to all of us to know or think about, whether or not we believe in any church-related things.

I think that church can teach things that are beneficial to everyone, whether or not we believe in church-related things.

This week in church we talked about inexhaustible mysteries.

The idea is that, just like how we keep being drawn back to the ocean and all its mysteries, God/Jesus/faith/redemption/something to do with this is a mystery we can keep coming back to. There will always be more there.

I do love me some mystery.

This week in church we talked about disenchantment.

Surprisingly, one of the things that was said was that sometimes, when you are disenchanted with something (even God), instead of trying to force yourself back into it, you should just let it go and walk away. Of course, this was said from the perspective that you can never really walk away from God, he's always everywhere and turning away from him often constitutes turning towards him.

Still, in a week where I have had many wonderful conversations with my friends about quitting and walking away from things this week, and this was a nice cap on it all.

Some questions to consider: what are you willing to walk out on? Is disenchantment all you have left in some area of life? What is it time to leave behind?
