Hebrews 5:11 About this we have much to say that is hard to explain, since you have become dull in understanding.
Occasionally in church, I feel like the dull one, as if there’s something about faith that I just can’t quite grasp. But maybe it’s not simply that I’m not trying hard enough. Maybe I’m not ready to hear some of the lessons in the Bible.

What mattered was that I showed up and listened and studied. I likewise continue to show up in church, to listen and study, and trust that God grades with great generosity.
