Does faith evolve?
Some authorities want to define faith as a light-switch which is on or off. Some people are “of faith” and others are not. Some people are “believers” and some are not. I have been surprised to learn, inside of trusting relationship, where non-Christians have expressed to me real anger about being labeled as “non-believers” or not “people of faith” as they feel very strongly about their beliefs (albeit different than most Christians).
I recently gave the following talk at a conference that dealt with issues of faith communication in the 21st century.
This conference was hosted by The Institute for the Theology of Culture, New Wine-New Wineskins (http://new-wineskins.org/).
Listen and consider how we orient ourselves toward faith, with a specific application to communicating with the other.
