Texts: Genesis 9:8-17, 1 Peter 3:18-22, St. Mark 1:9-15
Grace to you and peace from God our Father and Christ Jesus our Lord, who saves us in the waters of the deep. Amen.
Who has been to the Grand Canyon?
How about Niagara Falls?
Or maybe closer to home, who’s visited Tallullah Gorge?
What do these places have in common? They are geological wonders that show the awesome power of water. The Grand Canyon is, at its max, 18 miles wide, up to a mile deep, and over 200 miles long, all carved out by the Colorado River over the course millions of years – and still growing wider and deeper to this very day as the Colorado continues to eat away at solid rock.
