‘Peace Be Sill’
Sermon for Sunday, May 17, 2020. It was evening (v.35) and a fierce storm has hit while Jesus and the disciples are crossing the Sea of Galilee. The Sea of Galilee is 682 ft. below sea level, surrounded on the east & west by hills that rise as high as 2000 ft. above sea level. Intersected by plains and gorges that function as funnels for the velocity of wind. And when the perfect conditions converge––it creates the perfect storm!
We all face storms in life and some of them are terrifying. But we are not alone in the storm, Jesus has the power to calm the storm and bring peace (Mark 4:35-41).
