I want our first discussion to be about Faith.  I find Faith to be a key agent in the beginning of ones walk with Christ.  Remember we are saved by grace through faith.   So here are the questions to be asked and discussed:

Define Faith. (obviously use Hebrews 11:1)  I really want people to expand on their definition.  Try to define it with out using words that are Christianeze.  From the perspective of someone who knows nothing about Christianity and is wanting to learn.

Why is Faith a key base concept in Christianity?

In what way does Faith affect our daily choices?

Please as you talk use Scripture from both the New and Old Testaments and expand on your ideas so that those of us reading them will understand and feel free to get deep into the concept.  The more material there is to work with the better the finished product will be.
