WELCOME! I’m Sister Simon.
Hi! I’m Ramón.
Hello. I’m Cathlyn.
I’m Mei Lin.
Hi! I’m David.
And I’m Joshua.

  1. “And … Peter … walked on the water, to go to Jesus.
    “But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me.

  2. “And immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand, and caught him, and said unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?”*

  3. Please remember this about Peter—he may have lacked the faith to walk on water, but he had faith enough to know who could save him.

  4. We’re all going to find ourselves sinking sometimes, and we’re not required to walk on water. But we will need to take Christ’s outstretched hand. That’s a life and death choice.

That Afternoon
Dad, remember that window I said I didn’t break?
Yes, I do.

Well, I’ve got a sinking feeling that we need to have a little talk about it.
