Desperate Belief

The Rev. Dr. Charlene Han Powell (PCUSA)

In her sermon this week, Dr. Charlene Han Powell says if we are able to step back from our children's Bible version of Jesus, we might be able to see that this passage in Mark 7 is about recognizing this woman's desperate belief. Real faith isn't about getting what we ask for, but rather getting the one we are asking.

We of Little Faith

The Rev. Stephen McKinney-Whitaker (PCUSA)

Stephen McKinney-Whitaker says we tend to believe in Jesus enough to worship him, we trust him with our lives, we trust in his words and his power to bring life and cast out sin and death, but we--like the disciples in Mark 4--don’t trust in his power in us.

Parked Beliefs

The Rev. Dr. Casey Baggott (UCC)

Dr. Casey Baggott guides us through the story of Thomas in the upper room, who stands at the transition point between the disciples who did get to see, touch, and hear Jesus directly, and the millions who come after who don’t have that opportunity. Jesus doesn’t rebuke Thomas for wanting proof--in fact he encourages him to touch and see.

Written Within You

The Rev. Dr. J. Bennett Guess (UCC)

The Struggle to Believe

The Rev. Dr. William L. Self (CBF)

Dr. Bill Self shares the story of Simeon and Anna, two faithful servants of God who saw the Christ child and rejoiced in gratitude to God. Their joy reveals the doubts and struggles they must have wrestled with for years--just as we do today. This is a good time to move from skepticism to faith, to celebrate our doubt as a prelude to a deep, abiding, and mature faith.

Walking on Water

The Rev. Canon Michael Rusk (TEC)

The Rev. Canon Michael Rusk says that on a storm-tossed night on the sea of Galilee, Jesus reveals himself uniquely as the one endowed with the power of the creator God, the one to whom he has prayed all night. As he called Peter out of the boat, this Jesus calls us to step out of our comfort zones to offer the presence of God in the world.
