Faith for a Lifetime, 1st stage: Infancy

Trust

“When I am afraid, I put my trust in you.” (Psalm 56:3)

Each of us emerges from the womb completely helpless. It’s how every life begins. We enter a world full of danger; we cry out for help, and we depend on caring adults to provide for our needs. When our needs are met sufficiently, we learn how to trust. The psychologist Erik Erikson described these first years of life as providing a foundation of basic trust or mistrust on which all later faith builds. This same trust becomes the foundation for religion.

This Sunday, we listen to the faith of our littlest ones for what they have to teach us. Rev. Lewicki, preaching.
