How does faith happen? I think Jesus must have asked this question often enough, because it took his disciples a while to get it.

“Where is your faith?” he would say. “How many times do I have to tell you, there’s nothing to be afraid of? How is it possible you guys aren’t getting this?” (that’s a paraphrase)

The image of an exasperated Jesus makes me smile. We disciples today are exactly the same.  Oftentimes it takes us a while to get it. 

Over three weeks at First Pres we’re going to be looking at faith. The kind of faith that Jesus taught and lived.  We’ll unpack the basic questions:

Where does faith come from? How can it be believable?

What do I do with doubt? And, can it actually be possible to live a life without fear?  

Beginning September 9th.  You don’t have to be a Christian to come.

Just curious.
