Jim Griffiths was ordained deacon on 27 June. This was his first sermon as curate at St. Mark's.
We all love heroes. Our Christian heroes had radical faith. Sometimes our faith is fragile.
1. The necessity of faith in Jesus. Jesus is the ultimate authority.
2. It's not the strength of our faith that matters, but the strength of its object.
3. Faith can be tested. Why does God allow it? To strengthen it.
The passage calls us to radical faith, however shaky it is.
