This Sunday (June 21, 2015) at St. John’s

But he was in the stern, asleep on the cushion. (Mark 4:38)And they woke him up and said to him, “Teacher, do you not care that we are perishing?” (Mark 4:38b)

There are times when it seems the waves may overpower us and pull us and the boat we are in down under the waters. We may even feel that God is ignoring our plight, sleeping peacefully in the stern as the ship goes down with us in it. However, we are not being ignored, but rather being challenged to confront the issue and ride out the storm. We have already been gifted with all we need to see us through the crisis. All we need is faith.
