This morning On the Square , Russ Saltzman writes his abbreviated Confessions, recounting how he stumbled into faith without ever “getting” religion:

Far from being a “religious” person, I think of myself primarily as an ex-atheist. But just as there’s no such thing as an ex-alcoholic—only an always recovering alcoholic—so I am, as a rule a recovering atheist . . . . My faith didn’t begin in religion; it came out of left field.
