The most freeing “a-ha” of my religious life was when I understood that the journey of faith is neither linear nor confined to the stages I had been taught: unbelief to belief, the end. Faith, like human maturity, is cyclical and messy and paradoxical. We return to moments of unbelief, or perhaps the same struggle that seems to plague us, time and again. But the truth of the Psalter reminds us that upon each visit to that moment of unbelief or struggle, we are already different than we were the previous time. And each moment holds the promise of reorientation and hope; of growth and renewal.
