Chris Henry: The Problem with Piety

The Rev. Christopher Henry (PCUSA)

The Rev. Chris Henry says Jesus’ parable in Luke 18 is as current as the latest political attack ad or hateful Facebook post, because it captures the heart of the tragic human instinct to lift oneself up by tearing others down. The proud Pharisee thanks God that he is not like those people, while the tax collector begs God for mercy. And Jesus is clear about who goes home justified.

The Rev. Dr. Larry Goodpaster (UMC)

Bishop Larry Goodpaster offers three thoughts to take from Jesus' parable in Luke 18 to help us unleash the power of prayer for living faithfully: First, prayer is believing that God will act. Second, we must be persistent in our praying. And third, we must trust that the power of love and compassion, of God’s justice and mercy, will ultimately prevail.

Paul Tellstrom: All He Has

The Rev. Dr. Paul Tellstrom (UCC)

Only one exhibits gratitude, and Dr. Paul Tellstrom says our own authentic faith can enrich our lives and make us more open and loving people--but it all starts with gratitude.

Ginger Gaines-Cirelli: Increase Our Faith

The Rev. Ginger Gaines-Cirelli (UMC)

Ginger Gaines-Cirelli says Jesus' response to the disciples' cry for an increase in faith is to tell them about how effective faith even the size of a mustard seed can be. But even this small bit of real faith involves trust in God, and so is effectual only as long as it remains connected to the source of power--God.
