Navigating Stormy Seas: A Retreat Guide on Jesus Calming the Storm

Not sure how to use this retreat guide?

Living immersed in a secular culture is hard on our faith. We have to be even more intentional now than in past ages, perhaps, about nourishing and protecting that faith, since the predominant worldview is constantly attacking it. This Retreat Guide, Navigating Stormy Seas, will help us do that:

  • The First Meditation puts us in the boat with Christ’s Apostles as they cross the Sea of Galilee and encounter a life-threatening storm.
  • The Second Meditation gives us a chance to explore why Jesus stayed sleeping in the back of the boat while the Apostles were fighting for their lives.
  • And the conference takes us on a tour of church history showing how storms, in the light of God’s providence, actually seem to be the norm.

The Personal Questionnaire/Group discussion questions and the full text are available in the Companion Guide Book.  The Small Group Companion Guide has the questions and quotations. Either download the PDF Companion Guide Book or purchase it. The Companion Guide Book is available for purchase as a paperback at Amazon. Pause the video at any moment to go to the Companion Guide Book or continue to the next meditation.

  1. Thank you very much, Father John.

    We certainly need need to be reminded that our Church has withered some great stormes, and in the end it will always emerge victorious.
    It helps us to keep the hope alive, despite all disasters which erupt around us every day.

  2. Is there any way we can download these wonderful retreats?

    Blessings and great gratitude for all the team developing these retreats. They so help us form ourselves and develop a closer relationship with God

  3. Not only was this especially timely, Father John seemed to be speaking directly to me and some of the questions I had about why certain actions do occur. Thank you, Father, you never disappoint.

  4. Thank you so much for providing such excellent content.

    Although other videos have the option under “sharing” to download the videos,
    Navigating Stormy Seas” does not. Is there a way to download these videos?
