Desperation

Desperate Housewives tonight:

“I’ve been through a rough couple of months– cancer, a tornado.  I know you’ve been through rough times, too, and I just assumed your faith helped you get through it.”

“It did.”

“Really?  Well, okay, how?”

“I don’t know… It just did.”

“Well, that’s not a good answer.  Look, I don’t know why I survived and so many other people didn’t.  I don’t understand, and I NEED to understand.”

“Lynette, I had no idea. Why didn’t you tell me that?”

“Why didn’t you ASK??  Oh, that’s right. You don’t ask questions.”

Wow. Do we ask questions?

    Honestly? Not often enough. At least in US society we don’t. We are such a private society that, unfortunately, Christians have bought into the whole “don’t ask don’t tell” mentality. Sit back, and wait for people to come to us, but don’t go out into their world and encounter them. That’s just too scary.

    In the meantime, the rest of society on the surface touts the idea of “My life is my own, don’t bug me” while on the inside they are screaming, “Please, tell me that I matter to someone.” It’s only when tragedy strikes that people get real with themselves and realize they need some input from outside.

    Wow! a good faith message from Desperate Housewives! Darn those secular media for their fear and loathing of anything that resembles Christian faith!

    Do we ask the right questions?
