"We are not believers because it makes us comfortable. In fact, just the reverse is true: believing is the task of holding ourselves accountable to a system of values and principles that are difficult to achieve and constantly demanding, out of faith in a power that we cannot see but will always trust. Believers are people who seek to think critically, to get involved in difficult issues, and who try to sustain communities that practice the love they preach. Faith requires commitment to tradition and to change, all at once. It would be a lot easier to live without a spiritual discipline, but easy is not always as much fun." - Steven Charleston, Bishop of Navaholand.
