Intentional Faith Development
FMatthew 7:24-29 The Wise and Foolish Builders 24 “Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. 25 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. 26 But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. 27 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash.” 28 When Jesus had finished saying these things, the crowds were amazed at his teaching, 29 because he taught as one who had authority, and not as their teachers of the law. New International Version (NIV)
Intentional Faith Development What does it mean? How do we help each other grow to maturity in faith? How do we come to know God more deeply through Scripture, prayer and community? How can we do better? Pray with us and we work to intentionally provide settings to deepen our faith in Jesus Christ!

    Going Deeper into Discipleship
    RED SHOESThis week we hear Mark’s version of Peter’s confession of faith, when Peter says, “You are the Messiah.” In John, the stumbling block is Jesus’ invitation to eat his flesh, given for the life of the world. In Mark too thes candal has to do with Jesus’ words about his own coming death, and here Peter himself stumbles over Jesus’ words. But Jesus is anointed (the meaning of “messiah”) in Mark only on the way to the cross (14:3); so we are anointed in baptism with the sign of the cross.
