Reflection 11.5.18

We shortchange ourselves by regarding religious faith as a matter of intellectual assent. This is a modern aberration; the traditional Christian view is far more holistic, regarding faith as a whole-body experience. Sometimes it is, as W.H. Auden described it, ‘a matter of choosing what is difficult all one’s days as if it were easy.
