Encouragement

by Michael Potemra

 

“Faith . . . includes the trustful perseverance through the blackness of doubt, uncertainty, despair. Faith is not security away from darkness, it is the will to go on with darkness all around.” — Arthur Michael Ramsey, Archbishop of Canterbury (1961-74), in God, Christ and the World. (I have been reading Ramsey’s deeply faithful and convincing works of late and think he is an unjustly neglected figure.)
