What is Faith?

Bill Coffin, on FAITH – from Credo

“What is faith?  Faith is being grasped by the power of love.  Faith is recognizing that what makes God is infinate mercy, not infinate control; not power, but love unending.  Faith is recognizing that if at Christmas Jesus became like us, it was so that we might become more like him.  We know what that means: watching Jesus heal the sick, empower the poor, and scorn the powerful. we see transparently the power of God at work.  Watching Zaccheus climb the tree a crook and come down a saint. watching Paul set out a hatchet man for the Pharisees, and return a fool for Christ, we know that our lives too can become channels for divine mercyto flow out to save the lost and suffering.”
