Many people of faith experience periods of doubt in their spiritual journey. Some wrestle with questions about God, while others lose faith altogether. That’s what happened to Theresa MacBain. As a pastor, MacBain could not reconcile her doubts and eventually left the ministry.
But, as J.R.R. Tolkien writes, “Not all those who wander are lost.”
In "Help Thou My Unbelief" (Sojourners, November 2013), Mennonite pastor Ryan Ahlgrim shares his struggles about believing in God. He empathizes with MacBain, but is learning to embrace his doubts. Follow Ahlgrim’s journey here.
