How Do You Define Faith?

As Pope Benedict XVI visits the Washington area, we'd like to hear your thoughts on faith, whatever your religion or creed may be. To make it a little more challenging, we're asking that you define faith in exactly six words, the same number that Ernest Hemingway used in what he is rumored to have called his greatest work: "For sale, baby shoes, never worn." We look forward to seeing what your six-word answers are to one of life's bigger questions.
