And yet, it is also clear to me that faith can also irritate us. Faith can break us down, cause us to feel off kilter, and leave us wanting more...and I believe that that’s ok. In fact, it's good. Faith shouldn't be a flat book of rules or a simple set of lessons with which we try to order our lives. No. Faith should be something that grows with us, changes us in our deepest places, and inspires us to live in surprising ways. Faith matters. It matters when we hurt and it matters when we are able to celebrate.
May your faith change you this Easter season ... May it offer a new dimension to your life and a new bounce to your step. May this be the Easter season that reveals something very new and very good to you ... whatever that may be.
