Practice Makes Perfect

I have said this before, but a way forward to the quandary of belief lies in the ancient practice that behaviour and practice were more important than belief. That we should start with religious practice and obedience then belief may follow. After all, few people nowadays are fortunate enough to receive some unflinching belief as a bolt from Heaven.

Part of today’s Gospel reading is instructive:

Anyone who does the will of God, that person is my brother and sister and mother. (Mark 3. 31-35)
