Friday June 26th, Mark 4:  39 He got up, rebuked the wind and said to the waves, "Quiet! Be still!" Then the wind died down and it was completely calm. 40 He said to his disciples, "Why are you so afraid? Do you still have no faith?"  When we connect with Jesus we find the Jesus connection brings peace to the wind, peace to the waves, and peace to the chaos around us.  Life begins to settle down.  Living in fear, even the storms that rage around us seem bigger than life, bigger than they really are.  With our connection to Christ, we can live our lives connected to the God of “fear not.”  We can live connected to the God of creation, to the God of hope.  In our disconnected state, our brothers and sisters are seen as enemies or at the very least competitors and someone to fear or at least overcome.  God calls us to see even those who would call us enemies as our brothers and sisters.  We are called to see these as relationships we are called to mend.  Why are you afraid, do you still have no faith?  Let God calm the waters of chaos in your lives, the waters of fear, and replace it with the chaos calming faith of Jesus.  This is a Faith in our Creator, Faith in our Christ, Faith in our fellow creatures, and Faith in the creation from which we were formed.  Why are you so afraid?  Do you still have no faith?
