On Sunday we welcomed the return of Sarah Booth as she shared with us her infectious enthusiasm for her subject - comparing Peter's attempt to walk on water in the New Testament (Matthew 14) with the traumas of the Prophet, Elijah, in the Old Testament (Book of Kings) and looking at how we might learn from these stories.
Both men had faith (as we hope we have) which was sorely tested and found wanting (as ours often is) but they came through.
And this is the lesson - we all have doubts, worries, crises of confidence, but through it all we just need to keep our eye on Jesus and listen for that 'still small voice of calm' that will show us the way. Very few of us will have a 'dramatic' encounter with God, but we should all be aware that he is nevertheless guiding us and sustaining us on life's journey and preparing us for the world to come.
God Bless, Stuart
