Rather Than Any Fixed, Mental Product

Rather Than Any Fixed, Mental Product

Faith is not some hard, unchanging thing you cling to through the vicissitudes of life. Those who try to make it into this are destined to become brittle, shatterable creatures. Faith never grows harder, never so deviates from its nature and becomes actually destructive, than in the person who refuses to admit that faith is change. I don't mean simply that faith changes (though there is that). I mean that just as any sense of divinity that we have comes from the natural order of thingsis in some ultimate sense within the natural order of thingsso too faith is folded into change, is the mutable and messy process of our lives rather than any fixed, mental product.
