With this sermon I begin what I intend to be a three-part series dealing with fear and Jesus’ frequent statement “Don’t be afraid.” In this sermon, I talk about Jesus’ act of stillingthe storm on the Sea of Galilee. During the worship service in which I preached this sermon, we read Psalm 27 responsively. Then, in the sermon I talked about Matthew 8:18-27.
I am a husband, father, and grandfather. A small, town about fifteen miles west of Pittsburgh is home currently, though several other places have served that purpose before this. I maintain a YouTube channel of Bible teaching videos and a podcast of Bible teaching audio. I like to make things in my woodshop. I like taking photographs and use a lot of them in my blog posts. I go fishing in the local streams and lakes when I can. For thirty-nine years, I served as a pastor of churches in Pennsylvania, Ohio, and New York.
