Scripture to Read
Matthew 14:22-33 Jesus Walks on the Water
Immediately he made the disciples get into the boat and go on ahead to the other side, while he dismissed the crowds. And after he had dismissed the crowds, he went up the mountain by himself to pray. When evening came, he was there alone, but by this time the boat, battered by the waves, was far from the land, for the wind was against them. And early in the morning he came walking towards them on the lake. But when the disciples saw him walking on the lake, they were terrified, saying, ‘It is a ghost!’ And they cried out in fear. But immediately Jesus spoke to them and said, ‘Take heart, it is I; do not be afraid.’
Peter answered him, ‘Lord, if it is you, command me to come to you on the water.’ He said, ‘Come.’ So Peter got out of the boat, started walking on the water, and came towards Jesus. But when he noticed the strong wind, he became frightened, and beginning to sink, he cried out, ‘Lord, save me!’ Jesus immediately reached out his hand and caught him, saying to him, ‘You of little faith, why did you doubt?’ When they got into the boat, the wind ceased. And those in the boat worshipped him, saying, ‘Truly you are the Son of God.’

WHEN DREAMS UNRAVEL
(I HOPE YOU BROUGHT YOUR RAFT)
If I can’t spend my quarantine with you,
Then I will spend my quarantine writing love letters. They will sound something like this:
“Dear old friend,
It seems that this life is a river that ebbs and flows. And it seems we have found ourselves in the rapids— Choppy waters, where it’s hard to stand. Read more
Something to listen to
Something to Wonder and Discuss
~ Common childhood experiences that parallel this story of faith include:
- Riding a bicycle for the first time without training wheels
- Realizing that you are halfway across the pool the first time you try to swim all the way across the pool in the deep end
- Realizing what you are doing in the middle of standing up to a bully, even if he/she is responding well
- Realizing what you are doing halfway through your recital piece (people often lose their concentration and mess up when this happens)
- Realizing what you are doing the first time you stay home on your own

Deadline approaching to connect
PCPC and 34th St Church of God (historically black congregation, led by Bishop Tom Scott) have participated in joint dinners, picnics, and hope to extend that fellowship further. Their church recently came up with the idea of having “surprise pals” between members of each congregation. We want to encourage continuing contacts with their members. They asked to include young people (children and youth), as well as adults, in the program. We are inviting your family to participate in this ministry.
Meant for families to participate or individual ages 8 and up.
