Empirical Sacraments (09-17-17 Sermon)

The truth is only rarely fully present on the surface, as anyone who’s ever been in any kind of therapy can tell you,  as any archeologist or geologist or mythologist will tell you.  It’s always a matter of diving and divining. How do you go after it?  With what kind of curiosity, mixed with skepticism, mixed with open-mindedness, mixed with hope, with fear, with logic?  With what kind of agenda do you go seeking truth?
