Jayber Crow, barber and accidental spiritual director, finds the traditional path of a seminarian a difficult one with few allowances for those who are hanging on the fringes of faith.
“You have been given questions to which you cannot be given answers. You will have to live them out—perhaps a little at a time.’

That could be a long time.’
I will tell you a further mystery,’ he said. ‘It may take longer.’” – Jayber Crow by Wendell Berry
