Jesus Walking on Water
François Boucher Cathédrale Saint-Louis
What if God challenges us to jump out of the boat in this Year of Faith ?
What if He allows people to cross our path who are very different than our usual familiar acquaintances, who have questions we think we have rehearsed answers for, that pull us out of our comfort zone and make us look deeper into ourselves than we’ve looked in a long time. We study, we pray, we think about those who are without the Lord and assure ourselves that if only we get that chance to talk to them, we’ll reach into our pocket of prayer and memorized Scripture and tell them just what they need to know.
Saturday was just such a day for me. On my way home from running errands I decided to stop and see a family member visiting from out of town for whom I’ve have been praying over 30 years. We’ve had our ups and downs…Well, OK, we’ve had some knock down drag out’s in our younger years. At one point he thought I was a crazy Christian fanatic and wrote me off as a sad sap who can’t cope with reality but for clinging to my religion crutch.
