Why Does Charlie Wonder?
Why does Charlie wonder? Doesn’t he KNOW? Hasn’t he lived by Paul’s affirmation: “I couldn’t be more sure of my ground--the One I’ve trusted in right to the end”? Hasn’t Charlie even sung this message since he was a teenager beginning with: “I know not why God’s wondrous grace to me He has made known. . . .” That assurance of God’s love and care has never wavered, but the more I trust and know God, the more I wonder at God’s work throughout the cosmos. The divine mystery grows and fascinates me in multiple ways. Where would Christianity be--where would any religion be--without wonder, awe, amazement and mystery? Thank God I do not know it all.
