Suicide, Tattoo’s and Baptism

Honest, moving and a reminder we are never alone in this world. As Dr Martin Luther King said so succinctly, ‘The things we see are but the shadows created by the things we don’t see’.

Walking On Water

Sea of Galilee

Sea of Galilee

The Gospel this past Sunday recounted the week known story of Jesus and Peter walking on water. Located upon the See of Galilee. Of course it is in fact a violin shaped lake, not a sea at all. However, tradition has it recorded as a sea and so it remains.
