Trust is the very essence of faith, trust in God who is trustworthy. God is acknowledged as all true
security and strength; we need to place our trust in faith, family and community and not just in
our modern day materials and communications. Trust is essential to all human life and lies at the
heart of all relationships. Trust requires vulnerability, putting yourself in others hands. Trust is
central to a community, to living together in harmony, so it is to be valued and honoured. When
we work with others, we need to be willing to let go of control and trust in the ability and integrity
of others, as Jesus entrusted his ongoing work to his disciples and ultimately to us.
- Trust and be trusted.
