Every tomorrow has two handles. We can take hold of it by the handle of anxiety, or by the handle of faith. ~ Henry Ward Beecher
I heard a radio interview of two students who traveled with an organization that does volunteer work in third-world countries. The work was not related to hepatitis C. I don’t know anything about the organization, nor do I mean to promote it, but I was struck by its name, faith alive. Faith is a powerful concept, more so even than hope. Faith applies to many things; it is not restricted to religious faith. For me, every time I interact with anther Hepatitis C advocate, I feel the power of faith.
Faith alive may be redundant, since the practice of faith must be alive. However, I am comforted by the notion of a living, breathing faith, more powerful than the hepatitis C virus that has kidnapped my liver.
Faith alive makes me think that hepatitis C does not stand a chance.
