Belief Is the Least Part of Faith


May 29, 2013
The New York Times


Some Sundays ago, I was part of a sermon in my university’s church.

It was the kind of ecumenical church in which I’d grown up.

The minister and I sat on the proscenium

above the congregation and below the stained-glass windows,

and spoke about the ways that evangelical Christians understood God —

a subject on which I had written a book.

Afterward, there was a lunch open to the community.

The questions people asked

as we ate our avocado-and-cheese sandwiches

circled around the puzzle of belief.

Why do people believe in God?

What is our evidence that there is an invisible agent

who has a real impact on our lives?

How can those people be so confident?
