faithful action

"Our hearts and minds desire clarity ... life doesn't usually offer the clarity we are looking for. 

The borders between love and hate, evil and good, beauty and ugliness, heroism and cowardice, care and neglect, guilt and blamelessness are often vague, ambiguous, and hard to discern. 

It isn't easy to live faithfully in a world of ambiguities ... 

But authentic faith is antithetical to two things: certainty & inaction."

Faithful (with some measure of uncertainty) action is today's goal.

(H. Nouwen & G. Boyd words/thoughts mixed together)
