Life-long Learning

 
In this season of graduations, we celebrate the learning that continues on past school — the life-long habits of inquiry, openness to new ideas, discernment.  Every question leads to yet another question.  Doubts are welcome, for as Annie Lamott says, “The opposite of faith is not doubt, it’s certainty.”  Or Paul Tillich:  “Doubt isn’t the opposite of faith; it is an element of faith.”  So we keep doubting, and asking, and learning.  “Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves,” said Rilke. “Perhaps you will then gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer.”
