What does a life of faith look and feel like?
In our Old Testament lessons faith is clinging to hope of God's presence and power despite all evidence to the contrary. In our Epistle lesson Paul, the veteran evangelist and missionary -- who has previously summarized his own experiences and hardships -- exhorts Timothy to build on his own faith foundation as he continues Paul's work of preaching the Gospel. And in our Gospel lesson Jesus seems to be saying...well, what is it that he seems to be saying about faith? Perhaps that instead of wondering about our degree of faith we should simply get out there and engage in faith-ful activity?
Much grist for the sermonizing mill this week in our lectionary readings. Or perhaps you're taking time to observe World Communion Sunday, or recognizing Francis of Assisi this week, or going in a different direction entirely.
Whatever seeds of insight are being planted in your mind by your choice of Sunday Scripture texts, we'd love for you to share them here.
