As I began to note the spiritual gifts shared by the first dozen people to take the Spiritual Gifts Inventory, something stood out to me: Nearly everyone had “Faith” listed as one of their top spiritual gifts.
We are reminded this All Saints Sunday of the faith of our ancestors. Our faith has resulted from the faith of those who have gone before us, who encouraged us to believe, to “know that all things work together for the good for those who love God, who are called according to His purpose.” — Romans 8:28
St. Thomas Lutheran Church
What might it mean if God has given a significant portion of this congregation an added measure of Faith? Here a few possibilities that come to my mind. Maybe you can think of others.
Now, we all are afforded some measure of faith, and Jesus said “if you have faith as small as a mustard seed…” so we know even the smallest dose of faith goes a very long way. I am curious to see if this extra measure of faith is evident as more and more people share the results of their own inventories.
The Rev. Ken Albright
Dear disciples at St. Thomas:
Like those who have gone before us, let us continue to share our faith in Christ, who is the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, and everything in between.
Called in faith together,
