…if you had the faith of a mustard seed …

In his reflection  on the  gospel reading (Luke 17:5-10) at St James’  morning service last Sunday, Simon Clarke suggested that the  point of Jesus’ metaphor was not to quantify faith as much as to affirm its power.

The disciples had asked Jesus “to increase their faith”.  Jesus’ response was along the lines “unleash the faith you already have”.

The text of Simon’s reflection can be found here.
