Does anyone else get frustrated with or bitter about or turned off by the whole "When God closes a door, He opens a window"? Or even just a slightly more secular "When one door closes, another one opens." This phrase really gets to me because it's not really true and I no longer believe in an interventionist God. #theliturgists #liturgists #frustrated #pessimist or #realist?
@kaitlin @Vaashtii Absolutely agreed. While I believe in an interventionist God, those phrases are just plain dismissive. Whether or not there is a reason for something happening has nothing to do with the fact that sometimes, all the possible routes that could lead anywhere better are closed.
Honestly, when one door closes, sometimes it's the only door. Nobody can promise it will open again. But even if it does in the future, that person may just need somebody to sit on the floor and cry with.
This is an instance for folks who follow The Liturgists Podcast, The Alien & The Robot, and other things The Liturgists create.
