"Old things are passed away, behold all things are become new." 2 Cor 5:17

I love the emphasis on how this happens to us apart from any effort or skill or duty on our part. You got me thinking...

Faith is like the story of the apple hitting Newton on the head unlocking the theory of gravity. It found him, so to speak.

Faith is more like catching a virus; not so much like catching a thief.

Faith is remembering with a smile who Jesus really is and remembering with sobriety who we really are.

Our kids see our faith in how we respond to life more than what we say about life.

Thanks Brian for the feedback and the link to Hancock's work. I really appreciated his distinction between explaining and exploring. I couldn't agree more that God speaks to us, teaches us, through our kids as much as God works through us to and in their lives. We are all life-long learners..or as Hancock expresses it...life-long explorers.

"All too often we approach faith as if it were a possession or a goal." I like that.

Faith is a way of life, not the result of one. And our kids often teach us more about faith than we could ever teach them. Co-pilgrims, like you said.

Check out what Jim Hancock says is the number seven thing we should never say to our kids. It is a bit off the topic, but I think it relates to the way we share "the" faith with "our?" kids.
