Is Faith the Chicken or the Egg • Kit Novotny


Is Faith the Chicken or the Egg • Kit Novotny

In the story of Jesus healing the blind beggar Bartamaeus (Mark 10:46-52) Young Adult Minister Kit Novotny notices that it isn’t completely clear whether Bartamaeus was healed because he had faith or that his faith was the result of being healed. Is faith the chicken or the egg? She maintains that faith and wholeness are part of a ongoing “feedback loop,” informing and effecting each other.
