Going deeper…

Someone once said life is “Living with ambiguity while seeking the grace to live faithfully and authentically”. How is that definition helpful in coping with extreme expressions of faith around us?

How can we know when/if our own faith is extreme? How can we protect against that?

Should we aim to soften the extreme expressions of faith of those we meet? Or leave them be? What do you think?

Is certainty about faith always extreme? Are there times when it is helpful? When it is not helpful?
