To Affirm a Faith

“The beliving person lives with the faith that upon him rests the destiny of the world.”

At exactly four minutes, “To Affirm a Faith” is the shortest sermon in the SMU online database… and perhaps one of the shortest messages that Rabbi Olan ever delivered! Please do not assume that such brevity implies that Olan had nothing to say. This Confirmation sermon originally broadcast on December 12, 1965 is worth a four-minute listen, especially if any of these matters interest you: faith, evil, covenant, crises, and hope.

“But if we live by our faith, if we seek good and not evil, the world will survive. We shall be doing what one person can against the whole world.”
