August 13th 2017 – Sunday 19

(Matthew 14:22-33)
Why did Jesus send
the disciples away first
and the crowds later?

Against a strong wind
the disciples worked in vain,
with trepidation.

When Jesus turned up
on that dark and stormy night
they were terrified.

Do we work today
with trepidation or hope
that Jesus turns up?
