Well within most of our memories is the introduction to the term, “alternative facts”. Standing on its own, the concept that a “fact” can have multiple sides begs the question, “What is truth?” It is common to search for truth in many paces outside ourselves. Even a life of faith can be centered in the exterior – churches, symbols, liturgy, denominational and non-denominational doctrine…Perhaps the quest to find truth best begins with the internal grappling over what rings true at a personal level and not only leaning on the traditions of our society or ancestors.
Jesus modeled that there is power in identifying and speaking truth – even when it brushes up against the edges of tradition. His life and death also exposes the extremes some people will go to protect their beliefs. Living a life in personal truth is a courageous walk. But avoiding the walk is not living a life at all.
