STORMS

There are all sorts of storms: Lightning-and-thunder-and-pelting-rain storms Devastating-waves-and-menacing-wind storms Flooding, invasive, water-getting-in-everywhere storms. Outrage-erupting-on-the-streets political storms Battle-for-dominance-and-autonomy-and-land-and-loyalty war storms I-am-right-and-you-are-wrong relationship storms Terrifying, violent, tormenting inner mental storms All sorts of storms In Luke 8 Jesus calm a lake storm on his way to meet someone struggling to survive at the intersection of just about every storm that life can throw at a person.
