This is my third sermon on the topic of Faith Formation. The first sermon explored what we mean when we say ‘faith formation’, using the images of catching Jesus—believing in Jesus, Jesus catching us and looking to Jesus to give us what we need for our journey. The second sermon used the image of the Circle of Grace, remembering that we are created in God’s image; we are loved by God; and God is always with us. Faith formation is about living deeply into this awareness so that it affects all that we are and do.
In this sermon, I want to look at the space we create to explore and form faith, and the view we have from that space. The story of Thomas provides a good window into this exploration.
