Yesterday I attended a young person's baptism (she's college age). There were many, many people who attended, but most notably, her parents, neither of whom had any religious leaning; in fact, they were atheists.
As their daughter made her profession of faith, I wondered what was going through her parents' scientific-method-only minds. I spoke with them briefly, commenting that I valued their attendance, especially given their differing world views.
They said that they were there, because it was meaningful to their daughter.
I was impressed.
It takes tremendous self-possession to support someone in something that is important to them, but not to you.
I feel like I have some growing to do here … I was humbled by their magnanimous gesture of love.
