The most peaceful people I know are those who are able to live with paradox and remain open to the whispers of God that may be heard in very unexpected places. Understanding the limits of logic opens up new possibilities and the chance to recapture and reinterpret some of the stories, images and practices of our own spirituality that we may have found problematic in the past. A new appreciation for the mystery and majesty of God are paired with a greater passion for bringing justice and compassion for those around us. "Loving God and loving your neighbor" take on a new meaning and depth that often moves beyond any theological system.
