- What do these comparative and interreligious questions mean for how I live my life? Where do I find Jesus, how do I live openly, attentively, aware?
- If I am open to how learned relgious people from far away and long ago rethought the idea of the divine, it can perhaps provide me with a new vantage point to see my own tradition in a new way.
- How do I understand, get involved see th eworld and God through someone else's tradtion while recollecting my own identity?
- I am interested in entering a new conversation while keeping old commitments, meeting in new ways the God who has already become known to me.
- How can God teach me? How can God reach me?
- I must seek God as He dwells outside the boundaries of my own tradition because He is greater than anything I can understand or imagine.
- Keep my ears open--for if I can listen, I can see. That is the foundation of dialogue.
I hope to expand myself in new ways, challenge myself to the point of almost giving up, and finding my place among all the chaos in this world. I hope to be open to the possibilities which I encounter, and do so with a smidgen of grace.
