These words, moving and heartening, are from the blog of Bart Ehrman, the perhaps uniquely agnostic/atheistic Professor of Religious Studies at the University of North Carolina.
He tells how his mother found it very hard to understand and accept his eventual departure from his early evangelical Christian faith. Their relationship, however, managed to work through that, and rise above it, without losing any openness and honesty.
His thoughts about this are well worth reading, thinking about, taking to heart, and sharing with other. This is love – open, honest and unconditional.
