The Primacy of Faith
Faith is not the state of believing but the state of trusting in
the source that makes faith possible. Hence, for the spiritual
person, one's faith is not in the theological notions, rather faith
is in the God who acts in reconciling the world to Himself/Herself
and thus overcoming estrangement. Thus, while Jungian psychology
may help us, one ought not put one's faith in a psychological
frame of reference. Don't mistake the clothes for the essential
experience and its opportunities and demands for a more whole form
of living.

-- from the essay "The Nuts and Bolts of Jungian
Psychology and Spirituality"
by William Walker, D.Min.
