KWANZAA Day 7 • Imani - Faith
Originally uploaded by Greatwork.
Imani - FAITH is what gives us the heart to carry on whether it is struggling to bring into birth a new artistic creation or the struggle to transform the political landscape. We must also have faith that we will not do harm as we strive to create our future.
Faith is taking the first step even when you don't see the whole staircase.
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr
Faith is the bird that feels the light when the dawn is still dark.
Faith is the strength by which a shattered world shall emerge into the light.
Faith is to believe what you do not yet see; the reward for this faith is to see what you believe.
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
Far away there in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead.
Louisa May Alcott
