I Value Faith 1

Who said what?

 



Some of you have mapped out your faith journey recently, others will get the chance in January.  Whatever your situation, is there a view above that you agree with or one you disagree with?  Would you think from their statements that any of these people have had a deep experience of God?

 

We’re in the season of Advent, the time when we prepare to celebrate that God took on human form (Incarnation is the proper term).  Why did God do that?  What, if anything, does that mean in 2016 to you, to people who go to church just at Christmas, to the most desperate people of the world?

 

Paul writing to the Corinthians understood something of this,

 

you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sake he became poor, so that you through his poverty might become rich.

 

Prayer  (Frank Borman, Apollo 8 space mission, 1968):

"Give us, O God, the vision which can see Your love in the world in spite of human failure.   

Give us the faith to trust Your goodness in spite of our ignorance and weakness.   

Give us the knowledge that we may continue to pray with understanding hearts.   

And show us what each one of us can do to set forward the coming of the day of universal peace.

Amen.”
