[Jesus] said, “Come.” So Peter got out of the boat, started walking on the water, and came toward Jesus. - Matthew 14:29 (NRSV)
One summer, I stayed with a family who lived by a lake while I was doing a college internship. When I told them I didn’t know how to water ski, they were determined to teach me. This wasn’t easy for me, not only because I did not have great balance...
Before I can follow Jesus, I have to step out of the boat.

While several strategies for reopening the world are being discussed, I encourage you—the people of God everywhere—to allow this season to be a formative one during which you can make new discoveries about God and increase your faith. Use this time to embark on a life of prayer, a life of study, and a life of action—involvement in the community.”
