Suggested Reading: John 8:1 – 9:41

silent treatment

Sometimes it feels like Jesus is sleep and God is not listening. Believe it or not, there are times we can actually find comfort in God’s silence. In Mark’s Gospel account, we take a look at what happens when Jesus is sleep while it is storming.

five guys
