Gleanings: Holding Creed & Experience Together

We sometimes wrestle with keeping the objective and subjective elements of faith properly related to each other.  A recent comment from Richard Rohr is helpful…

“The only things we know at any deep and real level are the things we have personally experienced. Creedal belief, however, holds onto us until we have that experience! This is an important distinction, and why we need creeds as well. Each generation and person cannot start at zero.”
