Faith is work, its communal, its varied, it contains all our varied beliefs and doubts.
Belief is us reaching towards God
Faith is God reaching towards us
In order to have faith, you must have community. Its different than asceticism or belief, it is more than the individual spirituality.
Spirituality is how we practice our beliefs.
Faith is RELATIONAL, its about our relationship with God and therefore is about our relationship with each other.
Our relationships with one another help us to understand God- hence God gives us Faith.
