For 30 January 2016, Saturday of 3rd Week, based on Mark 4:35-41
On that day, when evening had come, he said to them, â€œLet us go across to the other side.â€ And leaving the crowd behind, they took him with them in the boat, just as he was. Other boats were with him. A great windstorm arose, and the waves beat into the boat, so that the boat was already being swamped. But he was in the stern, asleep on the cushion; and they woke him up and said to him, â€œTeacher, do you not care that we are perishing?â€ He woke up and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, â€œPeace! Be still!â€ Then the wind ceased, and there was a dead calm. He said to them, â€œWhy are you afraid? Have you still no faith?â€ And they were filled with great awe and said to one another, â€œWho then is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him?â€

Thank you, Mary Ellen, for this reminder during this time when our hearts may be filled with fear.
