The Thing You Don’t Know

January 29th, 2010 by Thalia Kehoe Rowden

I’ve said before that my Mum is my hero when it comes to giving people ‘the benefit of the doubt’, thinking the best of people rather than the worst.

Barbara Kingsolver’s new novel, Lacuna, has reminded me why my Mum’s attitude is so important.  The theme of the book is that ‘the most important thing about a person is always the thing you don’t know’ (p 218).  Ain’t that the truth?

I’m interested in your thoughts.  I’m certainly not asking you to tell us on this blog what it is that we don’t know about you, but I’m keen to hear what you think about the place of secrecy and assumptions in Christian community.  Thoughts?
