“Lord, Do you not care?”
Lord do you not care that I am going through this horrendous experience? Do you not care that I am suffering, in pain or in anguish? Do you not care that I mourn the loss of a loved one? Do you not care that I see no way out of a particular situation? Do you not care that I am sinking in despair, “sinking and taking on water” much like that boat the disciples were on?
His disciples did, in fact, ask Jesus if He cared. Come and hear His answer to them and to us… to all the world… as we consider the Gospel lesson for the Fifth Sunday after Pentecost in Mark 4:35-41
