And Another Thing.....


If you are still contemplating what Jesus walking on the water might mean in your life, perhaps this might help.


You are not walking on the lake like Peter, 
but on another sea, for this world is a sea: 
Trials its waves, temptations its storms,
and men [sic] devouring each other as fishes do. 
Don't be afraid, step out stoutly lest you sink. 
When the gale blows and the waves rise, 
and your weakness makes you fear you will be lost, 
cry out, 'Lord, I am sinking,' 
and the one who bade you walk will not let you perish.


Augustine of Hippo
