For 20 June 2021, Twelfth Sunday of Ordinary Time, based on Mark 4:35â€“41
On that day, when evening had come, Jesus said to his disciples, â€˜Let 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 gale 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€˜Teacher, do you not care that we are perishing?â€™ He woke up and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, â€˜Peace! Be still!â€™ Then the wind ceased, and there was a dead calm. He said to them, â€˜Why are you afraid? Have you still no faith?â€™ And they were filled with great awe and said to one another, â€˜Who then is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him?â€™

Thanks Jerry, Great preaching on a familiar Gospel but offering new insights and stepping into a difficult conversation at the same time as making the connection with the celebrations of Juneteenth and Fatherâ€™s Day. Kind of a full plate but offering much to chew on…Your gentle presence as the Preacher made the power of the Word invitational and challenging.
