Be careful what you ask for, the saying goes…for you just might get it. I made a call for suggestions on our next topic, and that’s exactly what I got! When I received the deluge of demands (okay, one request – thanks, Michael J), my heart initially skipped a beat. How can a series develop from Jesus calming the storm, I wondered?
Out of curiosity, I googled the definition of ‘storm’ and found this:
- A violent disturbance of the atmosphere with strong winds and usually rain, thunder, lightning or snow (synonyms include tempest, gale, whirlwind, tornado, cyclone, twister, squall, typhoon, hurricane)
- A tumultuous reaction; an uproar or controversy (synonyms include uproar, outcry, furor, brouhaha, rumpus, hue and cry, fuss)
Wow! I don’t know about you, but those definitions/synonyms jump out at me. They paint pictures of events so powerful as to demand some sort of reaction.
Intrigued, I looked up what the Bible has to say about storms, and it turns out that there’s A LOT – enough to keep us busy for many moons to come (yay!).
So sit back and enjoy the ride as we embark on our next series, titled Stormkeeper. I look forward to seeing you there!
