Why Are You Afraid?

Why Are You Afraid?

In the base camp of our church community, near and far, we continue in our “Trifecta” Series as we look at the questions Jesus asked. We will explore Matthew 8 and wrestle with the question “Why Are You Afraid?”. We will keep the gift of Sabbath, learn sacred stories, sing, pray, reflect, refuel, and revive our sense of reverence!

SCRIPTURE: Matthew 8:23-27 (CEB)

23 When Jesus got into a boat, his disciples followed him. 24 A huge storm arose on the lake so that waves were sloshing over the boat. But Jesus was asleep. 25 They came and woke him, saying, “Lord, rescue us! We’re going to drown!”

26 He said to them, “Why are you afraid, you people of weak faith?” Then he got up and gave orders to the winds and the lake, and there was a great calm.

27 The people were amazed and said, “What kind of person is this? Even the winds and the lake obey him!”
