The Anchor Cast up to Heaven
~ Belief ~
The gravity-defying anchor has been thrown upwards from something that resembles a boat, which is in danger of sinking. Our beliefs are tested when things go wrong, and storms threaten to sink the boat of our lives. The Anchor Cast up to Heaven reflects the counter-intuitive nature of putting one’s faith at such times in the promises of an unseen God.
Five hundred years ago the Reformers argued that the heart of the Christian message had become obscured by the formal practises of the Church, so they called people back to the centrality of faith – sola fides.
