Faith in itself, like a life buoy, sometimes a life buoy, is not automatic. It is never certain in the questions it tries to answer in the first place, and those who attempt to answer it often have to look beyond automatic survival and intuition to discover possible answers.

It goes without saying that no two people grieve in the same way. Everyone's needs are different at a time of loss, as are everyone's emotions. But in giving voice to one's own grief, others who have not been given the chance to express themselves can likewise find their voice.

I have a pretty enthusiastic American Literature professor here at the University of Southern California. Actually, enthusiastic might not be the right word for it; I think the words "intellectual agitator" best describe his personality. He's one of those guys that want you to question everything that you know and believe, but in a good way.

There is wisdom to do so in a much-neglected portion of Scripture, chapters 14-15 of Paul's Letter to the Romans. Paul introduces a category he calls "disputable matters," which in their time, were toe-curling controversies over big-ticket moral issues.
