Can you be happy without theology?


When I was in Kenya, the family I lived with did life this way – they worked their fields from sunrise to sunset, had dinner and socialized with family, friends, and neighbors, did chores… and went to bed. But we shouldn’t feel badly for them because they did not have the time, energy, or interest in arguing and debating various theological and philosophical positions. Surprisingly, they got along just fine and seemed quite happy without this.

“For my part, the longer I live the less I feel the need of any sort of theological belief, and the more I am content to let unseen powers go on their way with me and mine without question or distrust.” –John Burroughs, The Light of Day
