Leap of Faith

leap-of-faith

One of the most common illustrations used to teach kids about faith is the “chair.”

You believe that chair will hold you when you sit down… trust… faith… it’s easy…

Seems to me that faith is more like hurdling off a cliff into a pitch dark abyss… no idea what’s below… water? moon bounce? giant spikes?

Or maybe it’s more like being sucked into a black hole… no control… but you are there… no choice but to believe.
