Sunday in Jerusalem

Faith encompasses belief, but it is so much more.  It means to be steady. To obey God with perseverance.  To come before God with trust.  Better translated to mean faithfulness.  Just a sampling of the sermon from the Rev. David Pileggi, rector of Christ Church, Jerusalem.  His teaching on Jesus being approached by the Gentile in Luke 11 and marveling at his faith did not focus on Jesus ministering to the “enemy” centurian, but on what the faith was in which Jesus marveled.  Great day of worship!
