Sometimes the church trips all over itself in trying to explain away Biblical miracles like Jesus feeding the 5000 and walking on the water. Why did the early church include these stories in the Bible? Perhaps they say something about us and our place in this community we call the church. Like Peter, many today want to leave the boat, the Christian community, and go it alone with Jesus. Yet, it is when Peter is with Jesus and the disciples back in the boat that the storm ceases and they worship him as the Son of God. It’s best to stay in the boat.
