Why are You so Terrified?
The apostles in the boat crossing over to the other side is an image of the spiritual journey that all of us are called to make in faith. Jesus has taught us and is with us - but the journey to new and eternal life is not instantaneous, nor trouble free, nor easy, nor ever complete in this life.
How do we know that we are off the path that Jesus is walking with us? Fear! How often are we fearful in daily life? In daily prayer? In daily relationships? How dominant is the fear factor in our journey? That's the thermometer of faith in the Gospel!
Do you not yet have faith?. That's why you were so terrified.
Get into the ring! How this works...
This is easy! Each week on Thursday I post my homily idea...my main focus for preaching this coming Sunday. What I am hoping for is a reaction from people in the pews. Does my "focus" connect with your daily life, faith, and experience? Or not? Either affirm the direction I am going in (by giving me an example from your life) or challenge me, ask for clarification! Questions are the best! Reaction rather than reflection is what I'm looking for here. Don't be afraid, get in the ring. Ole!
