The Faith Habit

David RodebackThe Faith Habit

Here I write of faith, religion, and related themes — mostly my own faith and religion. I’m a Mormon. (They like me to say: a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.) I’m not trying to persuade you to be one, if you’re not. My primary motive here is to explain — to Mormons, other Christians, other believers, unbelievers, myself, whomever. There’s need for that; I hope that understanding, exploration, and intelligent discussion are always welcome.

My writings are sometimes apologetic (in the sense of reasoned argument), in that I am attempting to justify or defend my faith by explaining it. But I make no apologies (in the conventional sense) for having faith, for having a faith, or for presuming to discuss and ponder.
