Faith is generally understood as a form of meaning-making that is a quality of human living that at its best grounds capacities for confidence, courage, loyalty, and generosity – and even, in the face of catastrophe and confusion enables one to feel at home in the universe…If one composes a faith that is trustworthy, is it true? If one composes an ultimacy that is not trustworthy, is it faith? …”Faithing,” then, is putting one’s heart on that which one trusts as true. it is a bedrock trust that the pattern one sees is real.
–Sharon Daloz Parks
