if you haven't read the writing for today, make sure to do so. Luther hits the nail on the head with one of my favorite themes of the Scriptures.
On another note, in this morning's chapel message at the local Lutheran High School, Rev. Ralph Laufer brought up the Markan parallel's detail, suggesting that maybe Jesus kept walking past the boat to go in front of the disciples and clear the path through the storm to the other side. Wouldn't be the only time people were scared when the Lord was working to make their paths straight.
