Brief Reflection on Luke 17: 5-10. The 20th Sunday after Pentecost, Proper 22 Year C.
This is another one of those confusing, even troubling, gospels. The disciples make what seems like a perfectly reasonable request: Give us more faith! And Jesus gives them a stinging reply. We can sympathize with the confusion of the disciples. For chapter after chapter of Luke’s gospel, Jesus has been challenging them to embrace some pretty radical concepts. This Nazarene, this journeyman carpenter tells them that he and the Father are one; that they must change their hearts or perish; that love of God and neighbor supersedes sacred ritual; that you cannot serve God and wealth; that they must forgive and forgive… and on and on; one tough nut after another. No wonder they ask: Give us more faith!
