about this story

Exposition: A regular, rather insignificant, man found himself losing faith one cloudy morning. He was deeply disturbed by this, but decided to ignore these, as he put, "malicious thoughts".

Rising Action: Days passed, and still these thoughts festered and gnawed at his soul. As he observed the spire of "His" church, he began to openly wonder "What is the point of it all?"

Climax: That afternoon, he chose to attend one last day of mass, hoping that he would be swayed back into his old way of thinking. Instead however, he found himself growing angry until finally he went into a rage, and walked out mid-sermon. He could not stand listening to the Pastor's speech over "Innocence and Forgiveness" anymore

Falling Action: As he left, he took one last look at his church building. Although he had many fond memories, recent evens completely stained his devotion and faith. He needed to go.

Resolution: The man hit the road, with his future ahead shrouded in doubt. Although his choice felt impulsive, he felt it right. As he drove, the same words shuffled in his mind, "What is the point of it all."
