About Today Readings

Acts 6:1-7. Psalm 32(33):1-2, 4-5, 18-19. John 6:16-21.

Lord, let your mercy be on us, as we place our trust in you—Psalm 32(33):1-2, 4-5, 18-19.

Lord, let your mercy be on us, as we place our trust in you.

John’s Gospel story tells us that Jesus walked on water. Could this story be true? Perhaps the lake was frozen? Or was Jesus on a sandbar? Had the disciples had a little too much wine with their loaves and fishes? 

But Christianity is all about the implausible, the unlikely and the improbable. And we are asked to move beyond belief towards action. To fight for causes that seem impossible, like closing the gap between the rich and poor. To love our neighbours—whatever country they are from, whatever religion they follow and whatever language they speak. To trust God’s plan for us when it doesn’t match up with our own hopes and dreams.

What might ‘walking on water’ mean for me?
