Whitewater faith

Chris Gonzalez writes with beauty about the challenges of questioning one's beliefs. The discomfort of that phase in one's faith journey, though, is the way to real maturity:
When people start asking faith questions, comfort no longer is an option. When the soul emerges from its cocoon and wants to fly, things get kind of scary. Scary because whatever is trying to fly has no prior flying experience. Yeah, it gets kind of dangerous.

Personal integrity requires ditching the cocoon for God knows what. However, community life so frequently says, "Ok, Ok, you've had your fun, now get back in that cocoon."
It's a brief article, worth reading.
