Faith is all too often presented as a matter of religious beliefs, of accepting ideas about God that cannot be proved except in one’s own experience. Yet faith in its original meaning is much more active than this; it is about making a loving commitment, trusting and being faithful. If we explore the different dimensions of faith, we see that faith is so much more than an intellectual assent to religious propositions; it is more a spiritual adventure than a state of mind; a vision and a way of life rather than a creed. Faith is not static; just as we progress intellectually and emotionally, we develop spiritually.
