On Sunday morning, the daily devotional from Richard Rohr was simply titled "Paradox" and read as follows:

I don’t think the important thing is to be certain about answers nearly as much as being serious about the questions.

When we hold the questions, we meet and reckon with our contradictions, with our own dilemmas, and we invariably arrive at a turning point where we either evade God or meet God.

When we hang on the horns of the dilemma with Christ—between heaven and earth, between the divine and the human realms—it creates liminal space. All transformation takes place when we’re somehow in between, inside of liminal space. (Richard Rohr)

My question is this - are we willing to live in that space of questions long enough to allow transformation to come and take hold?
