SCRIPTURE READING:                         Mark 4:35-41 (NRSV)

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