My senior year of high school, I became a very confused girl. For years, I’d read the Genesis creation account in church but in spring of 12th grade, it collided head on with everything I’d studied about evolution.
People I loved had strong beliefs on either side. I read; I studied. And the people I loved discussed around me as I sunk more and more into turmoil. I began to feel uprooted from even my most foundational beliefs about God.
I’d always been super active in our church music ministry and made an appointment to talk to our music minister. Sitting in his office one afternoon, tears spilled as I poured out my heart and my questions. Behind his desk, he listened and then spoke these words I will be forever grateful for.
