Mormonism, Purpose, and Afterlife as Seen through a Purple Rain

Much of what we believe depends on what we hope or fear. We judge others and our church through the lens of who and where we are in a particular moment. Wonder becomes less a fascination than a question, while our questions of belief and believing are not inclined to be answered. Increasingly we see only through a glass, and darkly. Which is why for those such as us—old and foolishdoubts of the present become less troublesome— than regrets of the past, and we recognize in the uncertainty of the future—something akin to faith.
