Growing in Faith
He said to them, "Because of your little faith. Amen, I say to you, if you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there,' and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you." – Mt 17:20
Given very few of us have been able to move mountains, our faith has a lot of growing room. It is very important we attend to our faith, our soul, our spirit. If we truly seek the fullness of life that Jesus promises, we need to know His ways more and more. Otherwise there are many things to distract us, to lead us astray, to keep us from rising.
We provide some rich opportunities to help folks grow in their faith. The true teacher is the Holy Spirit. So what we hope is that we provide fertile soil for us to tap into the graces from the Holy Spirit.
