Seeking Your Thoughts
Have you ever, in the urgency and heat of a conversation, been pushed to consolidate and analyze a pattern of thinking you've been victim to for some time and share your findings before you're certain they are fully baked? Well, I had that experience today. A dear friend was alarmed, in the midst of great blessings, to be suddenly afraid of death. As an emotional, navel-gazing kind of guy, I've been down this path more than once, so I worked to put my own cycle into words. And now it seems a part of a larger conversation, involving this post of mine and this post from our friend Deacon Tyler. Forgive the rambling and lofty sentence structures; I've been listening to St. Augustine during my commute these past few days. Would love to hear your thoughts or struggles in this regard.
