It’s Monday again … which means another opportunity to chase wonder together through our weekly discussion.
This week, I’m drawing from Jen Pollock Michel’s discussion question from Day 18 of A Habit Called Faith: What would change about your habits of faith if you thought of faith less as intellectual knowledge and more as friendship with God?
By the way, if you are reading along with us in the Summer Reading Club, don’t forget we’re on day 16 today!
Great question! As a young believer, I remember all of the questions I had about God and couldn't imagine God as a "friend". Now, I know I am not a biblical scholar and sometimes my lack of remembering passages in the bible or stories sometimes makes me feel "inadequate" in a way, but I try to remember that is ok, the relationship is what is most important! My habits of faith would probably be deeper if I gave myself a break and focused on my relationship vs the intellectual knowledge.
The only way I can have faith is from friendship with God - knowledge is ok, friendship is the best!
