"I'm a Christian, and on top of that, a theologian.  I need words.  I keep asking questions and exploring possible answers.  That's okay, as long as I remember that all my words are symbols, all my answers are but pointing fingers [at the moon].  In the end, after offering words that might be helpful for me and others, after trying to point to the moon, I have to fold my hands and close my mouth and cherish the Mystery of life and death.  In the end, all I am really left with is trust."

--Paul Knitter, Without Buddha I Could not be a Christian
