Ride the waves with me. I dredged this ship up from the depths of the sea itself. It has layed, burried in the sand, for lifetimes, learning, understanding. We need no crew. We need no maps. We need no destination. We need only to breath in the salt air, to taste it. The ship knows where we are headed. Its barnacle crusted wheel turns of its own accord. Soon we too can understand what it understands. Soon we too can be free.
Fact 24: Second Officer Lightoller tried refusing a 13 year old boy onto a lifeboat until his father argued that he was a child. John Jacob Astor was also refused although he was the richest man in the world. He had wanted to go with his pregnant wife Madeline. The lifeboat was launched half empty.
[Quenya] luntë n. “boat”
Fact 23: the Titanic lifeboats rowed for about an hour towards the light of the Californian on the northern horizon to avoid suction. By the time the ship sank, it would have taken another hour to return for survivors, hence why so many died.

Now the ship was in the midst of the sea, tossed with waves 🌊. Finally, Jesus came walking on the sea. But the disciples thought they saw a spirit 👻 and were afraid. But Jesus SPAKE unto them: “be of good cheer, it is I, be not afraid”. Peter answered: “Lord, if it be Thou, bid me come unto thee on the water.” When Jesus told him to come, Peter went but was afraid. Jesus saved him from sinking, but asked Peter why he did doubt. When they came into the ship, the wind ceased. The disciples worshipped Jesus and said: “Of a truth Thou art the Son of God”.
📚When the disciples were afraid, Jesus spake. What do we do when we are scared? Do we remain silent, or do we act and speak? Let’s take Jesus’ example.
📚Jesus told Peter to come. When we go to Jesus, how do we move? In faith or in doubt? Jesus will always save us, but we should live in faith.
📚Let’s always worship Jesus, the living Son of God.
