Barth on Faith

A very brief but compelling passage:

Church Dogmatics 4.1, 748:
Faith is at once the most wonderful and the simplest of things. In it a man opens his eyes and sees and accepts everything as it - objectively, really and ontologically - is. Faith is the simple discovery of the church which finds itself in the father's house and on the mother's lap.
