August 13, 2017. In this story of Jesus walking on water in the Sea of Galilee, we hear Jesus inviting Peter to walk on the water. Peter starts out fine and then, when hit with doubt, he begins to sink while calling out for help. In our own time, as disciples of Bethlehem Lutheran, we are invited to walk on the waters of Baptism and to take a stand of inviting others into discipleship in Christ, as well as advocating for and serving others who fall victim to racism, injustice, poverty and oppression.
