Then the disciples came to Jesus privately and said, “Why could we not cast it out?”  He said to them, “Because of your little faith. For truly I tell you, if you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you.”Matthew 17:19-20 NRSV
Before we are able to move the mountains in our lives, we must first acknowledge these mountains. When we live in denial of what we are struggling with or having a hard time overcoming, we get stuck, settle, and are never able to do the impossible God is ready to help us achieve.
Join Russ and friends as they discuss the new article, “A Holiday of Faith,” and acknowledge the mountains they themselves have been denying in order to move forward toward achieving the impossible with God.
