These Gospel stories can seem so familiar. But sit with the disciples in the little wooden boat, and Jesus' power will render you speechless.
Season after Pentecost | 19th Sunday in Ordinary Time (Year A)
Genesis 37:1-4, 12-28; Psalm 105: 1-6, 16-22, 45b; (1 Kings 19:9-18; Psalm 85:8-13;) Romans 10:5-15; Matthew 14:22-33
I am writing a sermon on Matthew 14: 22-33, the passage wherein Jesus invites Peter to get out of the boat and walk on the water with him…in the midst of a storm. Peter has always seemed to me to be the naïve, overeager, overachiever type.
