Not a Leap of Thought, but of Action

It is terribly important to realize that the leap of faith is not so much a leap of thought as of action. For while in many matters it is first we must see, then we will act; in matters of faith it is first we must do then we will know, first we will be and then we will see. One must, in short, dare to act wholeheartedly without absolute certainty….

I love the recklessness of faith. First you leap, and then you grow wings….

If faith puts us on the road, hope keeps us there."
- William Sloane Coffin, Credo (Westminster/John Knox, 2004),  p. 18.
