Below is a paper my daughter "Darth Barbie" wrote for class.
I find it an interesting, insightful missive. Your comments, discussion and thoughts are welcome:
Faith: the belief in a divine being or a divine purpose further from our own small lives. But is that really faith? Why have we become so wrapped up in the subject of religion, belief, and our own significance that religion has become the subject of faith and belief, and faith and belief almost a dirty word?
