Light in the Storm
A Bible Study on God Calming Storms
The season of Epiphany is here, and I am looking for the light. Amidst so much chaos in the world, we need to remember that God is in control. God calms storms. In this class, we will study stories of God’s presence and power amidst chaos, danger, and doubts. From God parting the Red Sea, to Jesus calming a storm, to the Spirit transforming Paul’s life, our God is One who brings light into life’s storms.
“Light through the Sea”

When all hope seems lost, God makes a way through the storm.

When the natural world breeds chaos, God brings life.
“Light from a Boat”
Mark 4:35-41 (Jesus calms water)
Lectio Divina with all 3: Matthew 8:23-27; Mark 4:35-41; Luke 8:22-25
When we feel like we are perishing, God calms the storm.

When we tarry between faith and doubts, God walks with us on the water.
