Faith and Doubt

The New Yorker ran a series on Faith and Doubt a few weeks ago and Grand Prix Girl wrote in to make sure we covered it.

My favorites were:
  • Communion - the story of two poor boys in Nairobi and a special umbrella.
  • Winter Light - a cold church becomes a make shift cinema.
  • Counting Pages - a piece with beautiful writing, "No road to Damascus conversion but a kind of coin rubbing, in which ritual and repetition begin to reveal the credo underneath..."
  • Hypocrites - love in religion
