Long-Term Decency

We are good at what one commentator this week called, “acute decency.” We see images of families begin rescued from floods in Houston, small children and pets being carried through flood waters, and our hearts overflow. That commentator went on to say that we are good at acute decency, but we are not so good at long-term decency.

Resurrection Happens

There are interesting parallels between this story of Jesus walking on water and the crucifixion and resurrection stories that come later. This story, and the resurrection stories, illustrate the importance of faith, hope, and the life-giving power of the sacred. The parallels are so strong that I would even argue that the story of Jesus walking on water is a kind of resurrection story.
