The main theme, the message of Christianity as I understand it is not that God would come to take away all of our fear, pain and suffering, but that He would fill those experiences with His presence, His assurances.

Every so often it’s good to remember how little we’re actually in charge of.

I’m safer in a boat with Jesus in the worst storm than anywhere else I could try to get to by myself.


  1. Good thought. The secret is to really experience His presence in all of our day. Humbling but vital.

  2. on an unrelated note, did you see Tony Campolo on "The Hour" on Wednesday? Sooooo good. Way better than when Franklin Graham was on a couple of weeks ago.
