Living with the Question

Rev. Karen Brammer

In “Letters to a Young Poet” Rainer Maria Rilke wrote, “… have patience with everything that remains unsolved in your heart. Try to love the questions themselves, like locked rooms and like books written in a foreign language…”

 I sometimes wrestle with and sometimes rest with this idea of having patience with the unresolved questions. What is the meaning of my life? What is ours to do in this world? How to navigate between patience with the questions and respond to the more immediate need to live in right relationship? We’ll explore this together.
