First, my friend Pam and I joined a group from Downtown Church for a viewing of the Terrence Malick film Tree of Life. Downtown promised an "interesting film provoking questions of faith," while Nickelodeon director Andy Smith likened the film to "visual poetry." It did not disappoint.

I vow to pray more bravely, to ask bigger questions.
After thinking about this powerful film all night, and into the next day, my most swell and exceptionally talented apprentice Kathryn and I set out for viewing #2 at the Nick. Without the tension of storyline worry, I found the second viewing more beautiful, more conclusive.
God is there. I believe.
