Faith in the In-Between

Some Christian theologies (ie. Determinism & resurgent Calvinism) states that 
"Everything happens for a reason"

Science and empirical studies of cause/effects states that 
"Everything happens because of a reason."

Between these two lies chaos
with neither the answers for why things happen 
or for what reason do they happen.  

Perhaps there in the chaos 
between these certainties
is where doubt resides 
where the Christian faith abides

One that accepts neither cheap trite answers
or that what we can observe is all that there is.  

What's between "everything" and "reason" for you?

What's your in-between?
