Reckless Faith

I love the recklessness of faith. First, you leap, then you grow wings.

William Sloan Coffin


It’s risky, this “Faith” thing.


·      To entrust yourself to a Deity that might not exist.

·      To forgive when vengeance is justified.

·      To give, with no prospect of a return

·      To care for those who cannot care back

·      To serve those who do not deserve your efforts

·      To die to your Self, in the hope that your True Self might appear.


More than risky, it is reckless. A practical person would put such notions aside, play it safe, and get on with their life.


And yet, there is…

·      That persistent voice that beckons us to the Unknown.  

·      The way our heart is stirred when it hears the invitation to “Follow me.”

·      A nagging thought that perhaps the most reckless thing, after all, is to play it safe and stay where we are.
