Existential Faith - Three Ironic Heroes of Faith

A view of the the sun rising from Mt Sinai

This was a session in Cafechurch where we talked about the sort of faith we want - a faith which underpins our lives, even when we don't get the things we prayed for so hard, things which God seems to approve of. The three heroes were Job, Jonah, and St Thomas - all people who had to walk a hard path, but who were fundamentally, existentially open to God.

We watched this song. Mainly because I ran into it again when I was thinking about the session, but also because it gives a suitably global vision of God, and the fundamental fact about God.
