Tumbling in the Sand

Barefoot before God


The texts for Sunday, August 7, 2011 are: 1 Kings 19:9–18; Psalm 85:8–13; Romans 10:5–15; and Matthew 14:22–33

Audio of sermon:  Pentecost-L19A.2011

“… I can imagine not wanting to step out of that boat or to step out of that cave

because I know that I would fail.

because I know that I am tender-footed

and I would stand before Jesus, before the I AM, before the holy silence of God

barefoot, exposed, unprotected …

Maybe you can relate?”
