Emily opened the service with the announcements and stated that the deadline for applications for the new minister was the

She then handed over to Gary who presented the days message from Luke 8 beginning at verse 22
Gary mentioned how there were several parallels between the old testament and the new testament where the message is carried forward to allow us to be reminded.
He went on to tell of how Jesus had asked the disciples to take him across the sea in a small boat. During the crossing Jesus had fallen asleep as he was exhausted from all of his preaching and healing work.
A storm of cyclone proportions had come up over the sea and had caused the disciples to become worried about their safety.
For fear of what might happen to all of them, they had woken Jesus and asked him what they should do.
Jesus had told them that they should TRUST , as everything was in the hands of God and he would look after all that followed and believed in Him.
Jesus had then stood and commanded the storm to subside and the waters reverted to a complete state of calm.
Luke 8:22-31 New International Version (NIV)Jesus Calms the Storm22
One day Jesus said to his disciples, “Let us go over to the other side of the lake.” So they got into a boat and set out. 23 As they sailed, he fell asleep. A squall came down on the lake, so that the boat was being swamped, and they were in great danger.
24 The disciples went and woke him, saying, “Master, Master, we’re going to drown!”
He got up and rebuked the wind and the raging waters; the storm subsided, and all was calm. 25 “Where is your faith?” he asked his disciples.
In fear and amazement they asked one another, “Who is this? He commands even the winds and the water, and they obey him.”
