Every so often in our spiritual lives, we encounter times that feel like a moving day of faith. What we thought we knew needs cleaning out or updating. Our limited assumptions about God may need to be expanded so that more of our neighbors can find a home in God’s love. These moving days of faith can be unsettling as what we previously believed faces challenges.
Our faith is an adventure. Sometimes we have to pack up old beliefs and let them go. Moving is change, and change is hard, but often, on the other side, there is an opportunity for a new adventure, a new experience of our God.
This message is adapted from “A Moveable Faith” written by Brooke Peterson in the April 2013 issue of Gather magazine. Today we remember John Calvin, renewer of the church, who died in 1564.
