Faith in Winter

posted Aug 6, 2011, 4:13 PM by Elizabeth Batson
A wintry faith ... does not seek to transform sorrow into joy, but instead to confront sorrow on its own terms, and find some meaning within it. There is hope in a wintry faith, but it is the kind of hope that comes from strength, not by defeating pain, but by learning from it, and learning to live with it, learning to live in spite of it, and learning to live after it has left its mark. --Rev. Bruce Clear
