In this first Sunday of Advent lesson, Rev. Nancy talks about our “un-common sense” the spiritual faculty of faith. Jesus said in Matthew 17: 20: “Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible to you.” Rev. Nancy illumines this passage as a formula for renewing our faith and gives 3 ways that we can use our “un-common sense.”
