Mystery & Unknowing – Christine Valters Paintner 

February 23, 2017

“The desert fathers and mothers don’t offer up neat and tidy answers for life’s struggles. They simply acknowledge that the struggles exist, often mysteriously in the place of our deepest encounters with God. The desert elders embrace mystery and unknowing. The desert strips away all trite and easy explanations for how the world works.”
— Christine Valters Paintner, PhD Desert Mothers and Fathers: Early Christian Wisdom Sayings Annotated and Explained
