Risky Faith - Thought for the Week, 8/13/19


Mary, the Mother of Jesus, is remembered in a special way on August 15. Often referred to as the Blessed Mother, Mary provides an enduring legacy of taking risks for our faith. Imagine the risks Mary took when she said “Yes” to the angel Gabriel. Mary was willing to assume many risks as part of being chosen to become the Mother of Jesus. She faced social pressures as well as religious consequences for her decision to bear a child. In fact, in the political reality of Mary’s time, she could have been stoned when the fact of her pregnancy became public. Christians in our part of the world generally do not risk being stoned for our faith, but openly proclaiming our belief in Jesus remains risky. What are we willing to risk for our faith?
