Sunday to Monday / God Sleeps

...he did not speak to them except in parables

Mark 4:33

We began the summer sermon series: Jesus the Storyteller, a look at the parables. Yesterday Pastor Dave talked about the power of story - sharing the stories in our lives and finding ourselves grafted into the stories of God's people. One story to cling to is found in Mark 4:35-41 where Jesus and the disciples are in boat crossing the lake when a storm arose. Jesus slept. We need not be fearful or anxious because we trust the Jesus is sleeping and isn't anxious at all. God's got this. 

Check out photos from this past week: 

For your week's reflections, devotions and conversations: 

  • What is your favorite story to tell?
  • What is a parable? What stands out for you in Mark 4:30-34? First thoughts? Questions?
  • Why make such a big deal out of God sleeping? Genesis 2:2 and Mark 4:38. What’s the big deal about getting a good night’s sleep?
  • Looking ahead to next week: Reflect on the power of a Father’s (Parent’s) love in Luke 15:11-32. Is Father’s day welcomed in your heart?

Heya superb website! Does running a blog like this require a
great deal of work? I have absolutely no understanding of computer programming
however I was hoping to start my own blog soon. Anyhow, if you have any suggestions or techniques for new blog owners please share.

I understand this is off topic however I just had to ask.
Many thanks!
