In our seventh episode we explore the virtue of faith and the parallels to our journey as woodworkers. Faith is the theological virtue by which we believe in God and believe all that he has said and revealed to us … because he is truth itself. By faith “man freely commits his entire self to God.” For this reason the believer seeks to know and do God’s will. But “faith apart from works is dead”: so we strive to make our every action informed by faith and ordered toward the edification of ourselves and others. We should always seek to put into action that which we profess.
Thanks to our awesome listeners who chimed in on last Episode’s challenge, especially Adam (@catholicwhiskydad).
- How do you see woodworking as a journey, and where are you on that journey?
- If you are a man or woman of faith, how does it relate to your woodworking?
- If not, what higher purpose does your woodworking serve (i.e., outside of yourself)?
