Faith is tangible

like mineral or light form,

a quality determined

by the flow of longing

to lift beyond the finite

and bring down the wealth

of dawn from the mountain,

starlight as it follows the sea,

a magical something

within the spirit

that becomes the arc

of compassion.

    …and the arc of engagement with the world, and action too.

    Beautiful, Don! Thank you.

    I am reminded that a pastor of a rural Georgia church once said that, “Faith has more to do with the courage to trust than with knowledge.”

    He was speaking theologically, but I see it being true interpersonal relationships and even relationships with objects, i.e. a sailors faith in his boat.
