Learning from David and Goliath
The Rev. Dr. Ted Cole, Jr.
"Part of growing mature in our faith is learning how to hold tensions, learning how to hold two truths that conflict with one, or at least pull in opposite directions. Our readings this Sunday morning express that tension, that many of you, and I can speak about myself, I feel. Oh, to have Jesus in the boat! Oh, to have Jesus in the boat and just have to nudge him awake for the storm to calm! Because we live in stormy times. If only it were so. And there’s truth in that. I’ve certainly been in seasons of my life when I wanted that to take place, when things were just insane, and then peace, calm, hope broke in. Maybe you’ve had that experience too. It’s a reality of our life in faith."
