From my forthcoming memoir, “Masterpiece: A Love Story”
It is easy to believe only what we see with our eyes. I was trained to do that as a journalist. Note facts, reason out conclusions from them and proceed accordingly. Everything, everything in that mindset must be subject to reason and logic. The unreasonable, if unknowable, is unthinkable.
But faith in God changed that for me. Today, it is unthinkable to submit myself to reason alone. Instead, reason is a tool that is best wielded by a hand bearing the Truth. Now, it is reasonable to think about the unknowable and be happy in the mystery.
