Reflection by Revd Fiona Brown
June 20th 2021
It is evening and Jesus leaves the crowds with the disciples by boat.
Read St Mark’s Gospel Chapter 4 verses 35 – 41
The Sea of Galilee was prone to sudden storms and even though several of the disciples were fishermen who knew the waters really well they still found the storm terrifying.
There are events in our lives that it doesn’t matter how many times we have been there before and come through the other side we are still worried/scared/apprehensive. The disciples will have been through other storms on the sea but they are still afraid.
We do not face storms alone for Jesus is with us and he sees us through them - always with us and alongside us.
God of power and peace, when the storm is raging: you are there.
When our boats are sinking: you are there.
When faith slips through our fingers: you are there.
When our hearts sink and our courage fails: you are there.
In the roar of the waves, the sound of the wind, and the silence: you are there.
So we praise you. We thank you. We worship you in Jesus’ name. Amen.
