When Jesus was healing people he made a lengthy journey to help a man who people felt was possessed by demons. The man’s story is still common today. Many among us hide struggles with brain issues because they are worried about being stigmatized. In this Gospel story Jesus’ reaction to the man gives us guidance on how we can help.
There are times when we are afraid and we have every reason to be afraid. The storm is very real and the threat of drowning is a possibility. How do we handle our fear? How do we handle a difficult situation? Fortunately there are ways to weather the storm.
