Peace, Be Still (2009) (9″ x 12″)
collage on paper
Some people balk at accepting the nature miracles of Christ such as the stilling of the storm, found in Mark 4. They accept the fact that God is able to do anything, but feel that it would be somehow cheating for him to disobey the very laws of nature that he set in place to begin with. As a PhD scientist, I can sympathize with these feelings; however, they are only feelings, not well thought-out logical deductions.
This is too large a subject to cover in a few sentences. For those interested in pursuing it, I would recommend reading C. S. Lewis’ Miracles, C. John Collins’ The God of Miracles, or Bernard Ramm’s The Christian View of Science and Scripture.
