The protagonists involved in this read seem to be, on the surface, directly opposed on what's important, what's complete crap and how to survive the middle ground encountered until the truth is discovered.
I'm no farther along in that quest. But for the near future, at least, I have more information to consider.
As a person of faith, I find myself most aligned with Black. He completely chooses faith, even though at times it didn't make sense. This is one of our current problems in the faith world, we spend far too much time dabbling in the gray, trying to figure out the mysterious and trying to explain the things that are inexplicable to our mortal minds.
Perhaps it is time for us (me) to just believe and obey. That simply.
And maybe it is time for us to stop treating people like projects, another notch in the gun belt, another tally in the baptismal column, another soul saved...maybe it is time for us to start believing what we believe, start listening to our fellow humans, start sharing coffee and meals, and start sharing conversations about the journey of life.
