Faith Is

(a poem)

Faith is
not a possession;
nor is it
a measure of righteousness
or personal piety.
Faith is
not something
that separates me
from you
or anyone else;
nor is it
an object of oppression,
a weapon of war,
or a tool of torture.

Faith is
that in which we participate
Faith is
the grand counter-narrative
to the fatalistic notion
that nothing will ever
Faith is
living into the invitation
to see the world in
a new way.
Faith is
our active response
as coauthors
in the story,
in this journey
we share.
Faith is.
