What to do with beliefs?

Yes: “As elsewhere, so in religion, argument is a way of proceeding, but it is not the only way. Minds find themselves saddled with beliefs as much as they choose them, and the most interesting thing to do with beliefs having found that one has them is not necessarily to argue them but to explore and enjoy them, or to affront other minds into considering them” (Maurice Cowling,¬†Religion and Public Doctrine in Modern England, Vol. II: Assaults, xix).
