Open Faith, Take 2

Thomas Whitley

A few days ago, I asked the following:

How do you understand “open faith”? Is it the same for everyone? What must it involve? What must it not involve?

Not surprisingly, I didn't get any responses. For one, it was just a few days before Christmas and I know how busy the holidays are. Also, it's a tough question to answer "off the cuff." So, I thought I'd try to spark the conversation again with my initial thoughts on "open faith."

As I said before, this is a tough question. I have spent a lot of time thinking about it and keep coming back to a picture that my wife took while we were on a date in downtown Charlotte a year or so ago.

While I certainly think that an "open faith" should be accepting of all and should be more concerned with people than with doctrinal statements, this picture represents, for me at least, a large aspect of what it means for me to have an "open faith."
