Did you ever have one growing up? An invisible friend who no one else could see but you. You’d set a place at the table for him/her/it! There would be conversations in your room and tea parties with your special friend. Did you parents ever go along with it?
Some people I’ve talked with as an adult struggle because Faith seems more like a childhood invisible friend than anything of real substance. When it’s your faith in question, it feels like you’re the only one who can see it sometimes. When you’re on the outside looking in at someone else of faith – it can sometimes appear as if people are having conversations with someone and making decisions that you might just “go along with” because you don’t really understand it.
