We Have Enough

It is not a matter of how much [faith] you have, but of having any at all. 
Even the slightest amount can be overwhelmingly effective, 
because it is not faith in our own faith, 
but simply faith in God, faith that God is God, 
that God is able to act in the world. 
If we believe in God even just a little bit, it is enough.

Truth is, we always have faith. 
The problem is that we have faith in the wrong things. 
We believe in money, or power, or seduction. 
We trust that things will turn out bad. 
And our faith becomes, to a degree unknown to us, self-fulfilling.

If we have even an inkling of trust in God 
and the brazenness to exercise it, 
that, says Jesus, 
will be enough to change the very face of reality.

Sunday's Scriptures

Extending the feast ... with pancakes

After this Sunday’s celebration of the Lord’s Supper, we continue the feast with Pancakes.

                                                  • Practicing Good Conversation

                                                    3 more Wednesday sessions this Fall.
                                                    Still time to join!


                                                    Hope is the sparkle in a child’s eyes as she cups her hands around a bowl of warm rice and beans.

                                                    Hope is a fresh drop of clean well water that quenches the thirst of a woman who learned an economic trade instead of spending her entire day walking to fetch water.

                                                    Hope is an indigenous leader’s confident stance as he walks over the dirt threshold of his local church. He’s just completed theological training and he feels better equipped to lead his faith community.

                                                    Gift of Hope is a tangible way to provide basic needs, education, and more to people around the world who need it most.

                                                    Your gift empowers individuals and families to be self-sufficient. That means your gift has long-term impact.
