Lord, increase our faith

Reflections on the readings for Sunday 2 October 2016 (Twenty-Seventh Sunday in Ordinary Time)

Habakkuk 1:2-3. 2:2-4; Psalm 95:1-2, 6-9; 2 Timothy 1:6-8, 13-14; Luke 17:5-10

What would we do if we had more faith? How would our lives be different? In today’s enigmatic Gospel, Jesus doesn’t seem to be impressed with the disciples very pious request: “Increase our faith!” Instead he confuses them with talk about planting trees in oceans and servants who know their place. He confuses me anyway! Read my thoughts on the scripture readings here. Maybe I shouldn’t be looking for more faith, but simply taking the next step in doing what God has called me to do, and then the next, and the next. Maybe that’s what makes a journey of faith – one foot in front of the other. Faith as obedience may not be very glamorous, but it gets the job done!
