The confidence proper to a Christian is not the confidence of one who claims possession of demonstrable and indubitable knowledge.  It is the confidence of one who has heard and answered the call that comes from the God through whom and for whom all things were made:  “Follow me.”   –Lesslie Newbigin, Proper Confidence:  Faith, Doubt and Certainty in Christian Discipleship (Eerdmans, 1995), 105.

All I have seen teaches me to trust the Creator for all I have not seen.  —Ralph Waldo Emerson.
