I believe that as 21st century people, many of us live in a world that is uncomfortable with mystery.  As people with education, many of us view mystery as simply something that with proper scientific method, we can explain.  Once explained, it is no longer mysterious.  

The word mystery is often connected to imagination – best left for children.  

I am not anti-scientific.  I value the drive to know even when it is connected with a certain hubris.  

Yet, I am also aware of mystery that connects me to wonder, and imagination.  It is the world of the artist, and the scientist, the poet, the theologian and the scholar as well as the child.

Where are you finding mystery?
