Questioning faith

11 Jan 2024 • From Bishop Richard Jackson

In this week's video near the start of our Year of Faith, Bishop Richard says that 'doubt and questioning is a normal, even necessary part of faith development.  If we’ve been following Jesus for many years, it's unlikely our faith is the same now as it was when we started.  The Bible faithfully records such struggles.... Faith development is a process learning that [Jesus] takes us on.'

'Communities of faith should not be places of enforced conformity. There should always be room for robust questions and engagement because this is the process through which faith is owned and grows.... A healthy spirituality and community allows a safe place for that to happen.'
