Just a Little Bit

     His name was Paul.  He was one of my seminary students, and he was kind of nervous.  First of all, he was from a very remote village that had very little formal 
education, and although he was qualified when he entered the seminary, he clearly viewed himself as somehow lacking in what all the others had; for they had come from bigger communities, with better education, and better resources.  But even more than that, he had seen how one of his friends had done.
    The time had come for homiletics (teaching them how to preach), and one of Paul’s classmates had gone first.  Unlike Paul, he was exceedingly self-confident, and approached the task of preaching enthusiastically.  However, he was fairly rigorously critiqued for he clearly had an agenda, one which he was intent to put forth in his sermon.  It was not a good sermon.
     Paul was to go second, the next day.  He came to me after the class session, and said, “I can’t do it yet.  I need more…help.”  He argued that perhaps more books, more tutoring, more practice, might make him ready…but not quite yet.  I told him that he had had all the same books, the same instruction, the same practice opportunities, and that I believed that he was in fact ready.  “No,” he insisted, “I need more.”
“You already have precisely what you need…now just use it!  It will be fine.”
    Join us this weekend, where we shall explore the disciples request to have “more faith:” a request with which all of us might relate, but one by which, Jesus didn’t seem too impressed.  In fact, we sometimes assume that Jesus was scolding when he was encouraging.  We gather on Saturday at 5:30 pm and on Sunday at 8:30 and 11:00 am.  I hope to see you all there!
