This week’s Lectionary: psalm 9.9-20, 1 samuel 17.1a, 4-11, 19-23, 32-49, mark 4.35-41, & 2 corinthians 6.1-13
Working on a Tabernacle message about how we think that we need to defend God; violence, arrogance, separatism, hatred, war, & politics. Christ calms the storm and expects us (in the boat) to have “faith.” Seems, as His “Body,” we sleep at the wrong times, we panic at the wrong times (exhibiting little faith), rush to conquer and control, and if we are His representatives, why do we not calm the storms of those around us?
"Why are you afraid? Have you still no faith?" (mark 4.40)
