Amid storms of life, we gather this sunday to seek the calm presence of Christ that soothes our fears. The gospel lesson is from Matthew 14:22-33. Matthew typically portrays Jesus’ disciples as people of “little faith” who fail despite their best intentions. In sunday story Jesus comes to the disciples when they are in trouble and sustains them in their time of fear and doubt.
Worship service starts at 9:45 am at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church. This will be a casual, kids-friendly worship for all ages.
“O God our defender, storms rage around and within us and cause us to be afraid. Rescue your people from despair, deliver your sons and daughters from fear, and preserve us in the faith of your Son, Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord.” Amen
