The art of small faith

I cut my teeth on stories from the heroes of the faith. I always wanted to be like that… a superhero Christian. But life gives the gift of humility (or dented pride, whichever way you look at it), and I’ve lived through a few challenges along the way. It has been the experience of struggling to trust God through adversity that has caused me to conclude I’m no ‘hero’, not someone with great faith.

Turns out, that’s OK.  Jesus says he can use ‘small faith’ to move mountains.  So here’s a series to help us use the little we have – which often seems very, very small, and very, very feeble.  Let’s see what happens when small faith falls into the hands of a big God.
