Faith at its best

“Faith at its best places all of human experience in a frame of adventure in which all our trials and our tribulations, all of our pain and suffering are part of something greater than ourselves. To ask of life that it be free of trouble and anxiety is to be a child. Maturity teaches us that the essence of our natures is freedom, at times a terrible freedom.”

Rabbi Levi A. Olan. From “What Do You Want – Freedom or Security?” (December 17, 1961)
