Be Calm

Published on June 22, 2021
There is a story told about a sea captain who in his retirement skippered a boat taking day trippers to the Shetland Islands. On one trip the boat was full of young people. These laughed at the old captain when they saw him saying a prayer before setting out, because the day was fine and the sea calm.
However, they weren’t long out at sea when a storm suddenly blew up, and the boat began to pitch violently, The terrified passengers came up to the captain and asked him to join them in prayer. He replied, ‘I say my prayers when it’s calm. When it’s rough, I attend to my ship’. How about you?
