Faith Redefined

Letter to the Editors

I liked Ryan Ahlgrim’s “Help Thou My Unbelief” (November 2013), as he acknowledges what many of us experience: struggling with doubt and definition as we profess to “have” faith. His suggestion that relationship with God is central and that faith is trust prompts me to share that “faith is our response to God,” making faith both personal and relational. Perhaps trusting God and responding to God the best we can at any given time are the same. If not the same, they are at least related and help make faith meaningful.
