Sister Helen Prejean, author of "Dead Man Walking," said: “A story happens when an ordinary person is placed in an extraordinary situation OR when an extraordinary person is placed in an ordinary situation.” I think of Jesus as God made touchable. He was human bringing the Divine to earth to meet face to face with people; God in ordinary situations. To trust is to risk; to risk is to trust. The opposite of faith is certainty. Trusting God, one gives up certainty that things will go smoothly. By letting go of certainty, God can accomplish His wishes without our interference.
