The notion of going out not knowing comes from the New Testament scripture about God calling Abraham who responded by going out not knowing where he was to go. I have always felt that was a good description of life itself. The uncertainty of not knowing can be both frightening and exhilarating. In this blog I hope to reflect on both.
