For your contemplation: There’s an art to living your questions. You peel them. You listen to them. You let them spawn new questions. You hold the unknowing inside. You linger with it instead of rushing into half-baked answers. Jesuit priest and writer Anthony de Mello puts it well: “Some people will never learn anything because they grasp too soon. Wisdom, after all, is not a station you arrive at, but a manner of traveling. To know exactly where you’re headed may be the best way to go astray. Not all who loiter are lost.” Sue Monk Kidd

St. Paul’s is located at 625 C St. on the edge of the EWU campus.
