Matthew 6:33-34

Apropos a discussion at First Things today, reacting to a flyer from the UU church.
It is an odd sort of seeking that allows no finding.

Somewhere in C.S. Lewis' The Great Divorce, the narrator meets a character who insists on not believing he may ever arrive in either Heaven or Hell.

He has several sayings which illustrate his mindset, including this: "It is better to travel hopefully than to arrive."

Strange thought indeed, a seeking which denies that the quest is toward a goal.

That section figured prominently in the comments section there.

Of humorous note, the character was an Anglican bishop.
