Faith is an invisible contract. A deal we make in our guts – not our heads. Maybe that’s why it’s so compelling. It gets twisted around in our bellies. It becomes impossible to untangle.
In 2007, Dan and Lana Wright risked everything they had to open Senate on the corner of 12th and Vine in Over-the-Rhine. Many of their friends and family members told them not to do it. (The neighborhood had too much crime. The economy was tanking. Restaurants were taking a hit.) But Dan and Lana did it anyway.
To understand why, look no further than Dan’s right forearm where the word “faith” is tattooed in lowercase letters.
