Dear <<First Name>>, 

Thanks to a recommendation from our Minister of Music Scott Stroman, I have been reading former US President Jimmy Carter's latest book, Faith: A Journey for All, as part of my reflection for this sermon series.

Carter writes, "Faith is not just a noun, but also a verb." Faith is not a thing, it is love in action. Faith is a lived practice, not just something we have or don't, something we can find and lose again.

Carter is not the first to express this idea, but the power of his claim comes from the way his own life exemplifies faith as a verb. Even into his 90s, he works to build houses for the poor, campaign for human rights around the world, and endeavor to build peace in the Middle East. 

It's his work and witness to love that gives Carter the authority and ability to speak to so many people about his relationship with Christ. His work of faith as love in action invites conversation across lines of belief and unbelief and varieties of faith traditions.

This Sunday, we'll reflect on faith as a verb, on love in action, and the importance of living in love as a witness to the world for Jesus Christ.
