A Letter About Faith

[For young adults]

Dear Jim:

We were talking the other night about faith, specifically about your current lack of faith in Christian Science. You seemed to be asking what sort of happening would awaken your faith in Christian Science.

There seem to be some widely held false assumptions about faith. One is that faith is most likely to be experienced by the simple, the emotional, or the uneducated. Another correlative assumption is that some people are not capable of experiencing a strong sense of faith. A third assumption holds, as you did, faith is awakened from the outside by some sort of happening.
