Walking on water?
In the name of God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, Amen.
We live in a noisy, busy age. Especially for those of us who live in cities, we are so used to noise we often no longer notice it. We will switch on the radio when we get up. We might watch TV during breakfast. We will be assailed by recorded music in shops. Our phone constantly interrupt us with calls, emails, tweets and Facebook updates. Looking after children can be a non-stop whirlwind. Trying to make a date for something- for example a church meeting- can be a trying process, as each of us goes through our diaries, desperate to find a space.
A Christian ought to be someone who tries to live like Jesus. So why don’t we learn from Jesus?
