#blogelul : faith

what does it mean to have faith?

When some­one pro­duces the same lapel but­ton for com­pet­ing can­di­dates, all that indi­vid­ual is inter­est­ed in is the dol­lar. So encour­ag­ing us to [have?] faith in either can­di­date from the 2008 pres­i­den­tial elec­tion is very odd.

Is faith some­thing you can have in some­one? We say: “I have faith in you.”

Is faith some­thing that…? As in: “I have faith that….”

how do you understand faith?

your lapel buttons

Many peo­ple have lapel but­tons. They may be attached to a favorite hat or jack­et you no longer wear, or poked into a cork-board on your wall. If you have any lay­ing around that you do not feel emo­tion­al­ly attached to, please let me know. I pre­serve these for the Jew­ish peo­ple. At some point they will all go to an appro­pri­ate muse­um. You can see all the but­tons shared to date.
