Expression of Faith

What do you bring to the table in your expression of faith? With what capacities do you pursue your Christian faith? Of Augustine (354-430 AD), one of the church fathers, it was written:

“Augustine expressed his faith not with his heart alone, for the heart does not think . . . nor with his mind alone, for he never grasps truth in the abstract, as if it were dead.  Rather, to his task as a theologian he brought emotional tenacity, immense intellectual power, purpose of will, deep spirituality and heroic sanctity.”

“The Significance of Augustine,” Christianity Today, 11 December 1987, page 22.
