Being – The Hand of God

Spend some moments looking at this image.
Look at the face, the hands, the feet. What do you notice?
Look at the light and the dark, the ripples. Where do they come from?

Put yourself in the place of Peter. You have left the safety of your boat, striding out at the bidding of your Lord.
Then you falter, and the waves around your ankles are suddenly at your knees, then your waist …

Feel the cold slap of the water an your face.

Hear the cries of your friends as they watch you sink.

Feel the weight of your clothes, tangling your limbs.

See the light fading as you slide beneath the waves.

What has happened to bring Peter to this place?

What is happening now?

What is going to happen next?

 

Now leave Peter aside. It is your turn.

What has happened to bring you to this place?

What is happening now?

What is going to happen next?
