[T]here were some things I believed in. Some things I had faith in. And faith isn't about perfect attendance to services, or how much money you put on the little plate. It isn't about going skyclad to the Holy Rites, or meditating each day upon the divine. Faith is about what you do. It's about aspiring to be better and nobler and kinder than you are. It's about making sacrifices for the good of others - even when there's not going to be anyone telling you what a hero you are.

From Changes (The Dresden Files, Book 12) by Jim Butcher

...its about believing things are going to workout even when they're clearly not. And what the heck is skyclad?

Oh, skyclad is a reference to Wiccans going without clothes for some ceremonies, I think. The main character is a wizaed, but there's a lot of Christian stuff in the books too, including angels :)
