Everything BelongsThis entry is part of a series of significant thoughts from Everything Belongs, by Richard Rohr. See the entry entitled Everything Belongs Reflections for more info.

If we’re not willing to be led through our fears and anxieties, we will never see or grow. We must always move from one level to a level we don’t completely understand yet. Every step up the ladder of moral development is taken in semi-darkness, by the light of faith. The greatest barrier to the next level of conscience or consciousness is our comfort and control at the one we are at now.

A year and a half ago, the thought of moving to a new place to gather together a group of people to form a new church seemed horrifying, and yet now we are in the midst of it. The easy thing to do would be to feel that we have taken some grand step of faith, but ideally, we must continue to see how we are becoming comfortable lest we stop growing.
