Anne Lamott writes it better

I just finished reading "Plan B" last night (Anne Lamott's new book) and while I pretty much loved almost every page of it, I came across two lines that leaped out at me and seemed to encompass part of what I was trying to convey through my most recent blog post concerning "certainty" and "grace" and "fear" and "being human."

In it, she writes: "...the opposite of faith is not doubt, but certainty. Certainty is missing the point entirely."

I wish I could put things so profoundly and so concisely.

I know I already told you this, but I want to read that book so much!
