try this improvisation [6]: what is faith?











This weekend the Lent scripture readings got us thinking about the nature of faith. At our Eucharist on Sunday afternoon on South Park looking down into the city [on another beautiful day] we did a simple ritual trying to to explore the possibility that faith is stepping into the stream of what God is already doing. That faith is not primarily about our faith in God, but about God's faith in us.... We laid out a big V shape with rope on the grass, and then one by one stepped into the V at the narrow opening facing down into the city. Simple, seemed to work. Niamh , who is 3, said she liked this game.
