Mark 4:35–41 (Listen)

35 On that day, when evening had come, he said to them, “Let us go across to the other side.” 36 And leaving the crowd, they took him with them in the boat, just as he was. And other boats were with him. 37 And a great windstorm arose, and the waves were breaking into the boat, so that the boat was already filling. 38 But he was in the stern, asleep on the cushion. And they woke him and said to him, “Teacher, do you not care that we are perishing?” 39 And he awoke and rebuked the wind and said to the sea, “Peace! Be still!” And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm. 40 He said to them, “Why are you so afraid? Have you still no faith?” 41 And they were filled with great fear and said to one another, “Who then is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him?”

About Canon David Winter: After five years teaching (English and Religious Studies), ten years in magazine journalism and twenty years as a BBC producer, ending up as Head of Religious Broadcasting, I got a proper job - I was ordained in the Church of England. Over the last forty years I’ve published 40 books - one novel, two biographies, an autobiography, an anthology of poetry about Jesus (The Poet’s Christ) and endless books on religious topics. My main interest now is unpacking the Bible for modern readers and applying its message to modern life. I review books and write a regular diary column for the Church Times. This year I was elected a member of the Society of Authors.
