Seventeenth Sunday after Pentecost


Increase our faith. It’s the cry of disciples who have left behind father and boat and fishing nets in order to follow this Jesus. Increase our faith! Because faith is necessary for every moment in the lives of these disciples. Faith is the daily bread. Faith is the thing that keeps them walking on this path to which Jesus has called them. The easy thing to do would be to go back to their old lives. It would be easier to go home than to follow this preacher, this healer, this messiah, as he continues to meet sinners and Samaritans and gentiles. Easier, because every moment spent following this Jesus is an act of faith. [To hear the entire sermon, click on the arrow above.]
