The power of living faith

July 21, 2012
By the Rev. SHANE L. KIRBY Special to the Sun-Gazette , Williamsport Sun-Gazette

On Sunday, July 8, the common Lectionary used by many Christian denominations gave a reading from the sixth chapter of the Gospel of Mark in which Jesus returns to Nazareth to find that his friends and neighbors, those who knew him from childhood, could not bring themselves to believe that he was anything other than a carpenter's son. It concludes with the sad statement, "So he was not able to work any mighty deeds there, apart from curing a few sick people by laying his hands on them. He was amazed at their lack of faith."
