The story of Jonah is famous because of the whale.
But it’s actually about a man being brought face to face with his own religious and racial bigotry.
Sometimes only a crisis can make you realise what you need to face up to.
Matthew retells the story of Jesus stilling the storm as part of a group of stories about how Jesus confronts all manner of hell-bent evil.
He did it because we need to hold onto the core truth of Jesus’ authority over everything – especially when things seem to be going wrong.
Storms come to all of us.
Without the storm Peter would have never had the chance to walk on water…
Jesus’ story is that death didn’t get the final word.
Life did. Resurrection life.
And his promise was that this new life is ours to share. Life always trumps death!
