You don’t have to walk on water

Morning: Psalms 40, 54; Ecclesiastes 5:1-7; Galatians 3:15-22

It’s exhilarating to ‘walk on water’ when the Lakes are frozen in wintertime!  Jesus does not call people, though, to copy him, but to follow in his Way.  There are moments on life’s path when we may be faced with seemingly crazy or impossible challenges. This story of Jesus seems to say: In such impossible moments, keep your eyes fixed on his way of seeing the world.  Then, the storms that life throws your way will not overwhelm you and you will be empowered to bring love, peace and hope to a needy world … as Peter did.
