know his voice - stilling the storm

Today's readings in the Know His Voice project are made up of the accounts of Jesus stilling the storm: Matthew 8:23-27, Luke 8:22-25 and Mark 4:35-41.

A superb article appeared recently in Christianity Today entitled "Time in the Back of the Boat" by Kirk Byron Jones. It was based on a preacher's experiences and reflection on this very set of passages before us in today's Know His Voice readings. I've been there, done that and got the T-shirt myself, thank you. Not a few of my ministerial friends have just plain "burned out" before as well. So I commend this article to you and particularly to any and all church leader types. It's good stuff. Unfortunately, you'll have to search for it a bit though once you're on the site, but you'll find it.
