I have some friends who will not be fans of today’s topic. But it is important that I distinguish between faith and religion from the get go. Faith is a belief in something. Yourself. A higher power. An energy. God. Several gods. Religion is the organization of beliefs and rules.
This is about faith. And believing things. You know, without proof.
Faith isn’t about mysticism locked behind a church door. It is taking all those other things, the hope, the strength, the friends and the family and using them to keep the faith. The faith in yourself that keeps you driving forward. The faith in the good of the world that lets you pay it forward to someone in need.
By having (and keeping) faith in good and ourselves we are building a better world.
