On any given morning, I might not be able to list for you the facts I know about God. But I can tell you what I wish to commit myself to, what I want for the foundation of my life, how I want to see. When I stand with the faithful... and declare that we believe in one God ... I am saying, Let this be my scaffolding. Let this be the place I work, struggle, play, rest. I commit myself to this.
