I must have a lot of time on my hands these days, because every once in a while…I find myself wondering why Jesus chose Galilee as headquarters for his public ministry.
Sure, Galilee is a pleasant enough place (as backwaters go). But the world brims with far more beautiful settings. So why not pick one of them as “home base”?
One thing you notice, when out on the Sea of Galilee, is that conditions change quickly. In just a heartbeat, the sea’s glassy surface can turn choppy – and suddenly you’re surrounded by whitecaps.
Part of my ritual in tending to this blog is to change the “header” with each new liturgical season – so that the image atop the homepage of With Us Still…evokes (at least in my mind) the spirit of the season.
