September 13, 2020 Today’s gospel reading is probably one you’ve heard many times…Jesus and the disciples have just fed 5,000+ people and they’re exhausted. So Jesus tells the disciples to tuck away in their little fishing boat and head to the other side of the lake, while he goes away, all by himself, to pray. The sun sets, the disciples settle in for the night, Jesus is alone and enjoying the quiet. Then, upon nightfall, the winds start to pick up and the waves start rising higher and higher, the disciples go from near slumber to high alert, and, as far as they can see, there is no land in sight. The disciples are scared for their lives, when something like a ghost appears on the water.
