Digression continued - faith.

The only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love.

I suspect you would never intend this, but this is what happens. When you attempt to live by your own religious plans and projects, you are cut off from Christ, you fall out of grace. Meanwhile we expectantly wait for a satisfying relationship with the Spirit. For in Christ, neither our most conscientious religion nor disregard of religion amounts to anything. What matters is something far more interior: faith expressed in love.
Galatians 5:4 - 6, The Message.

So it is not my projects - however creative they might be. Nor my church programmes - however useful.

It is the interruptions in my life which give me the opportunity to express my faith. With love, even in the most unwelcome of situations.
