I have loved Dillard, too; the last thing I read was For the Time Being. After that, I wrote that I wearied of her always seeking -- I should have noted, always seeing -- and never coming to a knowledge of the Truth. But you are better, and did not say "always" "stops at where she needs to go." One of these times she may keep going.

I was still a Protestant when I first read her, and in one of her books I read a passage about her amazement that in church, when God was among us, we could be so careless and nonchalant and unaware. That thought never left me. She became a Roman Catholic for a while. I wonder if she has experienced an Orthodox service.
