Belief


Belief is the least interesting part of faith. I can believe all kinds of stuff, whatever I choose -- but what I believe isn't the point.  The point is to live in a relationship with God that's not controlled by my own ideas.  Faith is about putting my heart and my trust - my whole life - in God. Christianity is at heart about relationship - and the nature of my faith rests in relationship rather than belief."   - Sara Miles
