[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.

I join many of those who will pray for you as you seek to discern what you are called to be at this moment. May God grant you the courage to fulfill that calling. May we all open our eyes and see the misery, open our ears and hear the cries of God’s people, and, like God through the Lord Jesus Christ, be incarnate amongst them.”
