Receiving the Rune of Faith is an opportunity both to renew the commitment to your spiritual journey and to rededicate your life to larger purpose.
We speak of the gift of faith because that is how faith comes to us, as agift. there is no way to buy it, borrow it or prepare for it. After all, how can we prepare for a mystery? Faith is among God's most precious gifts, without it, doubt and fear will surely find us. When faith is absent, life lacks meaning, while in it's presence, the bounty of Divine Love is always to be found. the essence of faith is in all things.
One of the purest forms of faith is service, doing God's work on earth. Faith in action is the willingness to deal with life in the sure and certain knowledge that you will learn from your experience, overcome adversity and be healed.
The faith that promotes healing simply asks you to reach out wholeheartedly to receive the gift of God's love, and claim it as your own. St. Paul said that we walk by faith and not by sight. When you walk by faith, this Rune is saying, it is impossible to doubt God, yourself, your life or what tomorrow brings.
It was Ghandi who said that we must be the change we wish to see in the world. Faith encourages us to beleive that we can make a difference-a difference first in ourselves, and then in the world.
