This morning’s sermon draws from New Testament Professor Matt Skinner’s “Commentary on Mark 4:35-41” published on “Preach This Week” by Luther Seminary. The full commentary can be read here. Also quoted is Frederich Buechner’s sermon, “A 250th Birthday Prayer,” which is published in his collection of sermons titled Secrets in the Dark: A Life in Sermons (New York: HarperCollins, 2006) pp.296-297.

Also quoted, of course, are wise and brave souls in our congregation who shared thoughtful answers to hard questions. We are so blessed to be a people who can wonder together. Want to wonder with us? All are welcome, always.
